    Grady Sizemore

    Grady Sizemore, who turned down a deal with the Reds to sign a $750,000 contract with the Red Sox, arrived at spring training yesterday and sounded pretty optimistic about his health status after sitting out all of 2012 and 2013. Sizemore hasn’t been healthy and effective since way back in 2009, but he’s still just…

  9. Walt Jocketty thought he had a deal with Grady Sizemore

    Yesterday I wondered why the Reds-Grady Sizemore deal that had been reported to be in the works so long fell through. I wondered if it was Sizemore’s health (nope, given that Boston jumped on him) or if it was because one team was offering a major league deal while the Reds offered something less. Nope,…

    Detroit Tigers v Cleveland Indians

    Grady Sizemore hasn’t played in the big leagues since 2011. He hasn’t played a full season since 2008. His was a promising career that just crashed due to injuries. But for all that lost time, he’s still only 31. And he’s supposed to be healthy by spring training. Against that backdrop Nick Cafardo of the Boston…

    Opening Day is set to kick off in just a few minutes when the Houston Astros take on the Texas Rangers. The Rangers’ Matt Harrison opposes the Astros’ Bud Norris.

    Grady Sizemore is probably going to play again. It’ll be pretty newsworthy when it happens, but he should eventually get over his injury problems and, at the very least, be a role player someplace. Some teams are watching and waiting for that eventuality: The Yankees and Mets have both checked in on outfielder Grady Sizemore, according…

    Grady Sizemore has been linked to a few teams this offseason, but it sounds like he has no plans to sign until he’s recovered from September knee surgery and … well, given his history that might be a while.

    With Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Mike Baxter and the newly-acquired Collin Cowgill as the top internal options on their 40-man roster, the Mets don’t have a legitimate everyday outfielder at this point. Now they are looking at someone who hasn’t played in the majors since September 22, 2011. SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt hears that the Mets…
