VMART TEARS ACL, 2012 IN JEOPARDY

Detroit slugger Victor Martinez has torn the ACL in his left knee and could miss the entire 2012 season, Jason Beck of MLB.com has reported. Martinez was doing agility drills in Orlando, FL when the injury occurred.

VMart was one of the big bats in Detroit’s potent lineup last season, posting a .330/.380/.470 line as the Tigers won the AL Central. He also rapped out two post-season homers and posted an OPS of .885 in the ALCS where Detroit fell to the Rangers.
