MLB Injury News:
The Oakland A's had a two man bench last night courtesy of injuries to Josh Reddick and Scott Sizemore. Sizemore has been out since last Wednesday when he hurt his knee chasing a pop up. The injury was thought to be minor, but it is not clearing up. He will go for an MRI today tweeted Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle last night.
Sizemore is going to get an MRI tomorrow but it's clear #Athletics will have to make some personnel move.

The concern with Sizemore is a potential tear, but until the results of the MRI are back, the extent of the injury is not clear. Sizemore said he hopes it's just scar tissue.
Sizemore said that scar-tissue tearing might be "best-case scenario" for strange tightness he felt in surgically repaired knee tonight.

Sizemore had left knee surgery last March. He sat out for the entire 2012 season but came back ready to go this year. The knee sprain - as it is currently diagnosed - is certainly a setback, but Sizemore and the A's are hoping the injury isn't anymore severe. Another tear could cost Sizemore the rest of this season.
Sizemore has only played two game so far this season and has one hit, a double. In his career, he is a .238/.328/.381 hitter. The A's will likely have to make some moves to replace him even if Sizemore does not end up on the DL.

The results of second baseman Scott Sizemore’s MRI came back yesterday, and it was more bad news for the veteran infielder. The Oakland
Athletics have placed the 28-year-old on the disabled list with a tear of the
ACL in his left knee – according to Susan Slusser of The San Francisco
Chronicle – an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season.
Do you know the old saying, “If I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all?” Well, that fits right into the theme of things as Scott Sizemore, the second baseman /third baseman for the Oakland Athletics who just re-tore his ACL that he had been recovering from and is now out for the remainder of the 2013 season.
The 28-year old, who was acquired via the Detroit...
When A’s second baseman Scott Sizemore went out of Tueday’s game with the Angels with an apparently left leg injury, there was some worry about that being the same leg on which he had ACL surgery last year.
But few, including Sizemore, were probably prepared for the devastating official diagnosis that came in on Wednesday. He suffered another torn ACL, the same injury in the...
The Oakland Athletics will be without infielder Scott Sizemore for the rest of the season. Sizemore tore his ACL in Tuesday game against the Angels. Sizemore missed all of 2012 with the same injury.

When the Oakland Athletics traded for Jed Lowrie this February, not many people looked up from their cubicle. The deal exchanged a bunch of promising guys that the casual fan probably didn’t know between Oakland and Houston, two of the more disengaged fanbases in baseball. Despite its failure to make national headlines, the Lowrie addition and how Jed performs this year could...
A’s outfielder Josh Reddick said he won’t play in Tuesday’s series opener against the Angels in Anaheim due to a sprained wrist suffered Sunday against the Astros.
The bearded one injured the wrist on a scary crash with a wall in foul territory in Houston that looked far worse than X-rays later revealed it to be.
Reddick confirmed being out of Tuesday’s lineup to 95.7 The...
Coco has every right to lean like Bernie.
The first week of the Athletics 2013 campaign has seen the team realize the potential fans hoped for.
New additions Jed Lowrie and Chris Young, who were to be considered mid-level offseason acquisitions in the MLB, have shown they were undervalued on the trade market.
