TORONTO (AP) - Blue Jays second baseman Maicer Izturis needs surgery for a tear in his left knee and could be out for the rest of the season.

The 33-year-old Izturis was put on the disabled list Sunday. Toronto said Monday that he had a complete tear of the lateral collateral ligament.

Izturis will seek a second opinion before setting the surgery. The team said the recovery time is about four to six months.

Izturis is hitting .286 in 11 games.
