No ACL reconstruction for VMart
After further examination from Dr. Richard Steadman, Victor Martinez will not need reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He did undergo a smaller surgery to help further the healing.
What this means about his chances of playing this season: There’s at least a chance now. He’ll get examined in July to determine it.
“If everything looks favorable from the healing standpoint, that would allow him to begin functional activity to try to get back,” head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said Wednesday morning.
If he did come back, it would be at the end of the season, no sooner than late August.
