The Hiroshima Carp announced today that Takahiro Aoki was diagnosed with a meniscal tear in his left knee and had ACL surgery on Monday.  Aoki will remain hospitalized for about three weeks and will then require around twelve months for a full recovery.

Aoki hurt his left knee during spring camp in Okinawa in February and was originally diagnosed with an minor injury to the lateral collateral ligament.  Upon returning to Hiroshima, he was re-examined and was informed he had tears in both his lateral meniscus and medial meniscus.
