VMart doesn't need reconstructive ACL surgery, could be back sooner than expected

According to the Tigers, Dr. Richard Steadman determined that Victor Martinez did not require reconstructive surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, rather opting for a procedure last Wednesday to help the ligament's healing process.

The team announced that, in Dr. Steadman's opinion, Martinez was progressing well in his recovery from the Jan. 27 microfracture surgeries to repair the medial and lateral menisci. Since the normal expected recovery time from that surgery is seven months, there's now a remote chance that Martinez could return this year, a possibility that would be determined by a follow-up MRI in July.
