Victor Martinez has microfracture surgery
As expected, the second opinion on Victor Martinez confirmed a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which will require reconstruction surgery. He also apparently had damage to his medial and lateral meniscus. Martinez underwent microfracture surgery Friday, as performed by Dr. Richard Steadman.
According to a statement from the Tigers, Dr. Steadman is optimistic that Martinez will be ready for ACL surgery in 6-8 weeks. That timetable should pretty well rule him out for this coming season.
