Sizemore to have knee surgery, out 6-8 weeks

May 30, 2010, 11:48 AM EDT

According to the Indians’ official Twitter feed, center fielder Grady Sizemore will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery next week in Vail, Colorado and will miss at least the next six-to-eight weeks, and likely more.

Sizemore was placed on the disabled list in mid-May with a deep bone bruise in his knee.  Further testing must have revealed something much more serious, because contusions never lead to surgical procedures. 

The 27-year-old was off to a career-worst start this season, batting just .211 with a .271 on-base percentage, zero home runs and only 13 RBI through his first 138 at-bats.  Maybe the surgery will eventually help him snap out of the funk.  Trevor Crowe will see regular playing time in center for the Tribe over the next two months.
