Good news this evening out of northeast Ohio.

According to Nick Camino of Cleveland’s WTAM 1100, outfielder Grady Sizemore was cleared by doctors Wednesday to “initiate baseball activities next week.” He’ll start with light drills before moving on to batting practice and then simulated games.

Sizemore was placed on the disabled list just before the start of the regular season due to his ongoing recovery from early-March lower back surgery.

He has also dealt with chronic knee issues over the past few seasons.

The Indians are hoping that Sizemore will be ready to join their starting lineup in late May or early June.

    Grady Sizemore and baseball activities go together about as well as football writers and baseball.

    Sounds like Johnny Damon may have a short career as an Indian.

    A few years ago, the intelligent crew on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight said he was a future HOFer.

      You couldn’t possibly mean a few years ago when he was a top 10 player in the game.
