Victor Martinez Torn ACL; Likely Done for the Season
Jason Beck just reported Victor Martinez tore his ACL and if he needs surgery he is likely done for the season.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports Martinez injured his knee in winter conditioning.
The Tigers signed Martinez to a 4 year contract after the 2010 season and in his first season with the Tigers, Martinez hit .330 with 12 Home Runs and 103 RBI. He also bat behind Miguel Cabrera.
With Martinez likely done for the season it leaves a huge gap for the Tigers, who were favorites to win the American League Central in 2012.
