OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Athletics third baseman Scott Sizemore will miss the entire 2012 season after tearing a ligament in his left knee.
The A’s announced the injury Monday.
Sizemore was hurt on Saturday during the first day of full-squad workouts. He had an MRI exam and the A’s say he has torn his anterior cruciate ligament.
Sizemore was acquired by Oakland last May in a trade with Detroit. He hit .249 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs in 93 games with the A’s.
