Los Angeles Angels’ Dexter Fowler out for season with torn ACL

Los Angeles Angels starting right fielder Dexter Fowler has a torn left ACL that will require season-ending surgery, the team announced Sunday.

Fowler, 35, injured himself while sprinting into second base on an attempted forceout in Friday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Florida. Fowler beat the throw from Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette and didn’t slide, prompting him to arrive awkwardly and crumple to the ground in pain.

The Angels initially diagnosed Fowler with a sprained left knee, but a follow-up MRI revealed that it was far more serious. The team said Fowler is expected to need six to nine months to recover after surgery.

“Comeback season has commenced,” Fowler said Sunday. “The cards I’ve been dealt, so you’ve got to deal with them and go at it like that.”

Fowler, who is set to be a free agent after the season, doesn’t think the injury is career-ending.
