The New York Mets are “very interested” in former Cleveland
Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore, reports Kevin Burkhardt of SNY.
Heard the #Mets are very interested in Grady Sizemore. He's coming off microfracture surgery, but I would def take a shot w him.

After several productive and then frustrating seasons with the Indians, Sizemore parted ways with the club. He missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing microfracture surgery, and the 30-year-old has been hampered by knee injuries throughout his career.
Considering his recent injury history, Sizemore would figure to come at a reduced price even though he was once considering one of the game’s best center fielders. From 2006-08 Sizemore hit .279/.380/.499 while averaging 42 doubles and over 28 home runs a season.
Sizemore appeared in 71 games in 2011, hitting .224/.285/.422 with 21 doubles and 10 home runs over 268 at-bats.
