Tigers: Martinez Won’t Need ACL Reconstruction, To Have MRI In July

DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers say injured designated hitter Victor Martinez does not need reconstructive surgery for his anterior cruciate ligament.

Martinez had microfracture surgery in January and had the medial and lateral meniscus in his left knee repaired.
