The Latest on Sizemore's Ankle: Four-Month Recovery

New, 5 comments

As expected, Tigers second base prospect Scott Sizemore underwent surgery on his injured left ankle today in Detroit. Screws were inserted into the ankle to keep the joint stable while the fractured tibia and torn tendons heal.

The plan, as reported by Steve Kornacki and Jason Beck, is for Sizemore to wear a splint for two weeks. After the splint is removed, Sizemore's ankle will be placed into a Cam boot to keep his foot immobilized. If all goes according to schedule, the screws will be removed from the ankle in January.

Once Sizemore can begin putting weight on the foot, he can resume baseball activities. That timetable should allow him to be ready for Spring Training in mid-February.
