Grady Sizemore May Wait Until Mid-Season to Sign

Former Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore could wait until mid-season to sign his next contract, as the free agent does not want to commit to a team until he is ready to play again, his agent Joe Urbon told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

“It could be Opening Day. It could be midseason,” Urbon said. “Midseason is more likely.”

Sizemore underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee in September, and he continues to recover from the procedure. Urbon notes that teams have offered him contracts with the ability to recover at his own pace.

However, Sizemore doesn’t want to feel obligated to rush back for a team as he did last year with the Indians after signing a $5 million free agent contract. All that accomplished was another lost season for the former All-Star.

Sizemore last appeared at the major league level in 2011, hitting .224/.285/.422 with 21 doubles and 10 home runs over 268 at-bats for the Indians. The 30-year-old owns a career line of .269/.357/.473.
