UPDATE: Joe Stiglich of the Contra Costa Times reports that the preliminary diagnosis is a left knee sprain, though we’ll learn more once the MRI results are known.

4:26 PM: Slusser reports that Sizemore is set to undergo an MRI today on his left knee. She was also told that Wes Timmons and Josh Donaldson are likely to get a look at third base.

3:15 PM: Bad news from A’s camp.

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Scott Sizemore appeared to be in “significant pain” after tweaking his knee during a fielding drill this afternoon.

In fact, one onlooker told Slusser that they could hear an audible “pop” sound at the time of the injury. The team has yet to provide an official update on Sizemore’s status.

Sizemore, 27, was acquired from the Tigers last May for left-hander David Purcey and batted .249/.345/.433 with 11 home runs, 52 RBI, four stolen bases and a .778 OPS over 93 games with Oakland while serving as the primary third baseman. If the injury is significant, the A’s would likely have to go with some combination of Adam Rosales or Eric Sogard at the hot corner.

    The Sizemore name must be cursed.
