Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Athletics | Scott Sizemore out for the year

Oakland Athletics 3B Scott Sizemore (knee) was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Monday, Feb. 27, and he will miss the entire 2012 season.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as though former catcher Josh Donaldson is the front-runner to become the starter in Sizemore's absence at the hot corner this spring. Wes Timmons could push for the spot, too, but Adam Rosales and Eric Sogard have been tabbed by Bob Melvin as utility-infield types. Donaldson should only be considered in deep AL-only formats, and even then, he'll likely be waiver-wire material if he indeed wins the 3B job. Oakland could still sign a free agent, too.
