Found April 10, 2013 on 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. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) April 10, 2013 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. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) April 10, 2013 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.

Sizemore has...

Oakland Athletics Scott Sizemore Tears ACL

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.

A’s Scott Sizemore has another torn ACL, out for season

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.

Josh Reddick out vs. Angels on Tuesday

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.

Reddick confirmed being out of Tuesday’s lineup to 95.7 The...

A’s look strong after first week

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. Young has displayed power in the early going. He has hit two homeruns with...
