Victor Martinez suffers major knee injury

What a major blow for the Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers put out a statement that Victor Martinez suffered a torn ACL in his left knee while conditioning, which could keep him out all of 2012.

Martinez will be re-evaluated by Dr. Richard Stedman next week, but “surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee is anticipated” according to the Tigers. If surgery is required, as anticipated, Martinez will most likely be lost for the 2012 season.

Martinez hit .330 (178×540) with 40 doubles, 12 home runs and 103 RBI in 145 games with the Tigers during the 2011 season.
