Victor Martinez expected to undergo ACL surgery on Friday

v-mart ap

Detroit announced last week that Victor Martinez suffered a torn ACL during offseason conditioning.

He’s probably going to have it repaired on Friday.

According to John Niyo of the Detroit News, Martinez was in Vail, Colorado on Thursday for a second opinion on the potentially season-ending knee injury. If the original diagnosis is confirmed -- and there’s about a 99 percent chance that it will be -- he’ll go under the knife just before the weekend.

V-Mart, 33, batted .330/.380/.470 with 12 home runs and 103 RBI in 145 games last season. The Tigers signed Prince Fielder to a nine-year, $214 million contract this week to help make up for the loss.
