A's Sizemore undergoes successful knee surgery


OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics announced today that second baseman Scott Sizemore underwent successful ACL revision surgery on his left knee this morning at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in Pensacola, Fla.  The surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, was an ACL reconstruction using a patellar tendon graft with a medial meniscectomy.

Sizemore, who injured his knee April 9 in a game against the Angels in Anaheim, is resting comfortably in Pensacola and will be returning to the Bay Area for rehab on Saturday.  He is not expected to play again during the 2013 season.

The 28-year-old infielder was 1 for 6 with a double in two games with the A's before the injury. This is his second career stint on the disabled list as he missed the entire 2012 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during spring training.
