After missing most of last season and the first two weeks of this year following left knee surgery Grady Sizemore came off the disabled list on April 17 with a hot bat, hitting hit .282 with six homers and a .974 OPS in 18 games.

Unfortunately his comeback was been halted by a bruised right knee suffered while sliding into second base Tuesday and the Indians have placed him back on the DL.

Travis Buck was called up from Triple-A to replace Sizemore on the roster, with Michael Brantley shifting from left field to center field in his absence.

All indications are that the Indians believe this injury is relatively minor and the good news is that Sizemore’s surgically repaired knee hasn’t been an issue. Cleveland has the best record in baseball 24-13, leading the AL Central by 3.5 games over Detroit, and went 11-7 with Sizemore in the lineup.

    Good thing he doesn’t have a third knee b/c he’d surely injure that one too.
