SIZEMORE back with the Indians at age 34


Recommended Posts

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Grady Sizemore is back at Indians camp.


He's no longer on the injury recovery trail, though. The Indians have hired the former All-Star center fielder as an advisor to the player development department.


Sizemore, who played for Cleveland from 2004-11, will assist the Tribe's big-league coaching staff for a few weeks before switching over to minor-league camp in March. During the regular season, Sizemore will serve as a special assistant, with both on-field and off-the-field responsibilities.


A three-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove Award winner, Sizemore totaled 139 home runs, 216 doubles and 134 stolen bases during his eight-year tenure with the Indians. He had all three All-Star nods on his resume before his 26th birthday, but injuries derailed his career.


Sizemore, 34, latched on with Boston, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay in the latter stages of his career, but he could never find the success that had previously made him one of the league's top center fielders.......CONTINUED. .........

Seems like Grady has been gone forever but he's younger than Napoli and Encarnacion who played last season.


Great memories of a guy who played every game crashing into the walls making Web gem catches....and shortened his career.
