Grady Sizemore pulled with left knee contusion

May 16, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore was lifted from Saturday’s game in the fifth inning with a left knee contusion, reports MLB.com’s Jeff Seidel.  He suffered the injury on a slide into second base at the end of the fourth and was replaced by Trevor Crowe.

Crowe is 3-for-6 with a home run and two RBI since being called up from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.  He may be asked to play the next several games in center.

Sizemore could probably use some rest, no matter how severe his injury proves to be.  He’s batting a disappointing .211 in 128 at-bats this year with a .271 on-base percentage and zero home runs.  The Indians are 17-20 this season, seven games back of the Tigers in the American League Central standings.

    The Indians are 15-20, though I’m guessing you just assumed they’d sweep the Rays in the next two days…

    Well, if Crowe IS asked to play the next few games in center it would be silly of him to say “no”

    The least you,as a reporter, can do is report the information properly. Sizemore was removed from SUNDAY’s game, not Saturday’s game. And the Indians record is 15-20, as of Sunday’s game.

    And the Indians aren’t trailing the Tigers by seven games in the AL Central, they’re trailing the division-leading Twins by seven games.
