Interesting note for tonight’s Red Sox-Yankees game, as Grady Sizemore will start in left field for the first time in his major league career. He hasn’t played the position since 2003 when he was in Double-A.
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Red Sox manager John Farrell said he decided to go with Sizemore in left and Jackie Bradley, Jr. in center field because of the dimensions at Yankee Stadium and that it’s not necessarily a sign of things to come. Still, we could see a similar alignment when Shane Victorino comes off the disabled list, so it’s not a bad idea to see what Sizemore looks like out there. Boy, that could be an excellent defensive outfield.
It’s going to be a very tough call when Victorino is ready. If you include Mike Carp, they’ll have six outfielders for five spots. Bradley is certainly making a case to stick around.
