  1. Grady Sizemore: “I’m healthy, I’m good to go”

    Feb 10, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    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…

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

    sizemore close

    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,…

    Jan 22, 2014, 6:42 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cleveland Indians

    WEEI’s Rob Bradford is reporting that the Red Sox are in agreement with outfielder Grady Sizemore on a one-year Major League deal worth $750,000. He can earn an additional $5.25 million with incentives. We learned earlier that Sizemore was moving on from the Reds, who had been heavily pursuing him. Sizemore, 31, hasn’t played in the…

    There was a lot of talk about the Reds’ courtship of Grady Sizemore (note to our younger readers: he used to play major league baseball), but now that’s over. Straight from the GM’s mouth: Walt Jocketty was just asked about signing Grady Sizemore: “Not gonna happen… Things have changed.” — RedlegsRadioReport (@RedlegsRadioRep) January 22, 2014…

    Mark Sheldon of MLB.com says … #reds have explored adding OF Grady Sizemore and believe he’s healthy, says Jocketty. http://t.co/eVbK7mqprM — Mark Sheldon (@m_sheldon) January 3, 2014   Maybe he’s just cursed to roam Ohio for all of his days? I have some familiarity with that, so Grady, if the Reds are your only option,…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  7. The annual Grady Sizemore watch has begun

    Nov 19, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    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…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  10. Grady Sizemore resumes baseball activities

    Grady Sizemore

    Grady Sizemore has not played since 2011 and he has not had a full healthy season since George W. Bush was president. But he keeps trying. Nick Cafardo of the Globe reports that this year’s attempt to resume a derailed career has begun, with Sizemore resuming baseball activities. Cafardo wonders if teams like the Mets…

  11. The worst Opening Day starts of the 2000’s

    Mar 31, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    Bases emblazoned with Opening Day sit ready to be installed on the field on opening night of the MLB season in Houston

    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. Though Norris isn’t terrible, he isn’t exactly the type of starter you envision kicking off your team’s season on Opening Day. With that said, let’s…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Today: the Cleveland Indians. The Big Question: Can the Indians be a quick fix? After following up an 80-82 season in 2011…

  13. The Yankees, Mets have checked in on Grady Sizemore

    Jan 9, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    sizemore ap

    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…

  14. Grady Sizemore unlikely to sign before midseason

    Jan 7, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    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. Agent Joe Urbon told Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com that “midseason is more likely” for Sizemore to…

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  16. Report: Mets “very interested” in Grady Sizemore

    Dec 20, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    sizemore close

    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…

  17. Grady Sizemore had another knee surgery, out until midseason

    Dec 3, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    Free agent Grady Sizemore underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee in September, his agent told MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince on Monday, and he’s expected to be sidelined for at least the first half of next season. Sizemore already underwent microfracture surgery on his left knee in 2010. The latest procedure would seem to bode particularly…

  18. After missed season Grady Sizemore plans to play in 2013

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    Grady Sizemore‘s bad knees caused him to miss the entire season, providing zero return on the Indians’ $5 million investment, but at age 30 he’s not ready to call it a career. Sizemore’s agent, Joe Urbon, told Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that “Grady is working his way back” and “the plan is…

    I would have preferred to have posted this last week, but here’s the remainder of the updated top 111 free agents column. In case you missed it, the top 50 was posted last Friday. Players in the top 111 are ranked based not on how I view them, but more on how I believe teams…

  20. With Terry Francona in fold, Indians can’t be so cheap

    Oct 6, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Terry Francona

    The Indians’ move to hire Terry Francona looks like a coup. Getting a two-time World Series-winning manager to come to Cleveland and take over a team that hasn’t finished over .500 in five years makes for quite the turn of events. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if it does any good. Francona…

  22. Grady Sizemore ruled out for the season

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    When the Indians re-signed Grady Sizemore to a one-year, $5 million they did so hoping he’d be ready for Opening Day, but instead the oft-injured center fielder hasn’t played a single game and now he’s been ruled out for the season following another setback. Manager Manny Acta summed up the situation pretty well to Jordan…

  23. Indians manager already thinking ahead to 2013

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Manny Acta

    After an 11-game losing streak knocked his team out of contention for 2012, Indians manager Manny Acta is looking ahead towards next year. “It’s no secret, we’re going to need to improve our offense,” Acta told Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “We’re going to have to find a solution in left field, we’re…

    This is the saddest game of ping pong ever. Grady Sizemore is making progress! Grady Sizemore has a setback! Grady Sizemore will be back soon! The Indians think Grady Sizemore is done for the year! Now, Grady Sizemore thinks he can still contribute: Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore, rehabbing his knees and back, said he still…
