Link-O-Rama: Sizemore hoping to return tomorrow

Jul 30, 2009, 12:32 PM EST

* Grady Sizemore is hoping to come off the disabled list
tomorrow after choosing to skip a minor-league rehab assignment for his
injured left elbow. “My elbow feels good,” Sizemore said. “I haven’t
had any setbacks, but we’re only going to find out how it really is by
playing every day.”

* Thanks to Albert Pujols’ latest heroics, yesterday Tony La Russa became just the third manager in baseball history with 2,500 wins.

* Ryan Zimmerman went hitless
in 15 at-bats over the weekend and is now batting just .221/.329/.359
in 161 plate appearances since his 30-game hitting streak was snapped in mid-May.

* According to Torii Hunter, Matt Kemp has the potential to become a great defensive center fielder. According to Ultimate Zone Rating, Kemp is already a better defender than Hunter … and just about everyone else.

* Joe Morgan’s mind is still playing tricks on him.
