OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland Athletics third baseman Scott Sizemore has undergone surgery on his left knee to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The team says the surgery was performed Wednesday by Dr. Douglas Freedberg in Scottsdale, Ariz. The 27-year-old Sizemore will miss the entire season after getting hurt during the A's first full-squad workout Feb. 27 in Phoenix.

The A's say Sizemore, who batted .249 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs in 93 games last year in his first season with Oakland, will begin a rehabilitation program in the coming week and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training next year.
