Scott Sizemore out for season with torn ACL for second straight season
Wednesday, the A's placed Scott Sizemore on the disabled list and announced he has re-torn his left ACL and will miss the rest of the season. He missed all of 2012 after tearing his ACL in spring training.
Last February the A's announced Sizemore had a torn ACL in his left knee and would be forced to miss the entire season after undergoing surgery to repair the ligament.
Wednesday, the A's placed Sizemore on the disabled list and announced he has, in fact, re-torn his left ACL. It goes without saying, but for those who need to see it in writing -- he's out for the season.
Sizemore, 28, hit .245/.342/.399 with 11 homers and 56 RBI in 110 games with the Tigers and A's in 2011. He got six plate appearances for the A's as a second baseman this season, gathering a double as his only hit.
The A's can deal with this. They currently have Eric Sogard to play second and could swing Jed Lowrie to second once Hiroyuki Nakajima comes back from a hamstring injury. It's easy to see Jemile Weeks getting another shot as well.
But the story here is the agony Sizemore must be feeling. That's two consecutive seasons ruined by what is essentially a fluky injury out of his control. Send him your best positive vibes.
