Grady Sizemore’s return to the diamond has changed directions. Instead he’s returning to the disabled list. Sizemore was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a bruised right knee, an injury he suffered on a hard slide into second base last week. Baseball scores.
Sizemore, who was absent during most of last season after going through a microfracture surgery on his left knee, will stay in Cleveland to get healing. Sizemore was not in the lineup all weekend, when the Indians had consecutive games against Seattle delayed due to the weather. On Friday, manager Manny Acta said the team did not believe Sizemore would have to go back on the DL.
Travis Buck was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take Sizemore’s place. Baseball odds.
The 28-year-old Sizemore in only 33 games last season, and he wasn’t activated until April 17 year. In the 18 games he was in the lineup, Sizemore has looked like his old self, batting .282 with six homers, 10 doubles, 11 RBIs and scoring 15 runs.
The Indians don’t want to take any chances with Sizemore, and he has learned to be patient while recovering from his operation, a procedure no one was really certain would work. Baseball spreads.
