Scott Sizemore cannot seem to catch a break.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the 28-year-old second baseman has been diagnosed with a re-tear of the ACL in his left knee and needs reconstructive surgery for the second time in two years. He has been ruled out for the rest of the 2013 season and could struggle to get back to 100 percent health by the start of 2014.

The A’s will feature Eric Sogard at second base for now but could recall Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Sacramento if Sogard isn’t producing. Sizemore was 1-for-6 with two strikeouts.

    That’s a brutal shame. Nice guy, one of those players that you wish well even after he leaves your team. Every Tigers fan I know was hoping for him to make it back this season.

    One more injury and he’ll have reached Peak Zumaya.

      Peak Zumaya is the ultimate in injury woes. I hope that Sizemore does not go there.
