Phillies OF Grady Sizemore gets four hits in win on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore had his first four-hit game in nearly six years in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks. Sizemore had a double and three singles, and also scored a run the 7-5 victory.

Sizemore's last four-hit game came on August 21, 2008 as a member of the Indians. The big night upped his season batting average to .275 and he now has nine hits over his last six games. He said that receiving steady at-bats has helped trigger his current success at the plate, MLB.com reports.

"It felt good to have some good swings and get the win," Sizemore said. "I felt like I didn't have a lot of at-bats or a lot of consistent at-bats, so I try to just do what you can to stay sharp and relax up there and keep grinding it out."

Manager Ryne Sandberg agreed, saying Sizemore has progressed into a comfort zone with regular at-bats.

"Grady just seems to be clicking right now," Sandberg said. "He gave us some real good pinch-hits, he got some hits and I think that got him rolling. Now with some starts, he seems to be in a groove. He's just seeing the ball real good, squaring it up."


Struggling Phillies' Chase Utley bats sixth on Friday vs. D-Backs


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has been dropped down to the sixth spot the order for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks. It's the first time since 2005 that Utley has started a game batting lower than fifth. He has yet to break out of his season-long slump that has seen him hit just .118 on the year. 

Grady Sizemore will occupy the third slot in the lineup for the first time this season.


Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur out again on Saturday vs. Marlins


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur was held out of the lineup for the second consecutive day on Saturday. Francoeur, who had started eight games in a row prior to Friday's contest, is hitting an abysmal .121 with zero home runs and zero RBI over his last 10 games.

Grady Sizemore was once again inserted into the lineup in right field, and batted fifth for manager Ryne Sandberg. 


Phillies' Sizemore draws first start in six games with Haren on mound


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore drew his first start in six games Tuesday against the Marlins. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg might have made the move given Sizemore's history against Marlins starting pitcher Dan Haren.

Sizemore is batting .550 (11 for 20) with two doubles, three home runs, four RBI, three walks and three strikeouts in his career against the veteran right-hander.


Phillies adjust outfield alignment in second game of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg has decided to adjust his outfield for Philadelphia's second game against the Red Sox, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Sandberg is going with Ben Revere in center field, Darin Ruf in left field, and Jeff Francoeur in right field, pushing Grady Sizemore and Odubel Herrera to the bench. Ruf will make his season debut after hitting .235 with three home runs and eight RBI in 102 at-bats in 2014.


Phillies OF Grady Sizemore draws start in right field for opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore drew the start in right field for Monday's season opener against the Red Sox. Sizemore could see the bulk of starts in right field with Domonic Brown on the disabled list.

Sizemore has never faced Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz in his career.


Grady Sizemore the favorite to start in right field for Phillies?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) It appears Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore is on track to be the team's Opening Day starter in right field with Domonic Brown sidelined due to injury, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Sizemore started a third straight spring game in right field Thursday against the Rays, which could be a strong indication of manager Ryne Sandberg's plans for right field with Brown on the disabled list.

The other remaining candidates to start in right field are Jordan Danks and Jeff Francoeur.

While Sizemore appears to be the favorite to start in right field, he is not having a strong performance offensively this spring. He is batting just .200 (9 for 45) with no extra-base hits, three RBI, four walks, five strikeouts and six runs in 17 games.


Phillies RF competition down to Sizemore, Danks, Francoeur


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies' Amaro expecting Sizemore to be on Opening Day roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Although Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore has struggled offensively this spring, leading to some speculation about whether he will make the Opening Day roster, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Monday he expects the veteran outfielder to remain on the roster.

“For me he is (on the team),” Amaro said. “Sizemore can swing the bat.”


Phillies OF Grady Sizmore competing to keep roster spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore has seen more playing time in minor-league games rather than major-league games as of late because the team wants him to quicken his bat after seeing him struggle to stay ahead of pitches in Grapefruit League games, manager Ryne Sandberg said.

"It should be a good thing for him going forward," Sandberg said Wednesday, per The News Journal. "...I think getting him seven or eight at-bats in minor league camp sometimes goes a long way for guys making adjustments and coming out with not only some hits but some reps like that all in one day."

Although the Phillies signed Sizemore to a one-year, major-league deal in October, it sounds as though his spring struggles have put him on the hot seat. Sizemore is batting just .148 (4 for 27) through 12 spring games, and Sandberg wouldn't confirm if Sizemore has a spot on the Opening Day roster.

"As far as the outfield goes, I don't have that settled," Sandberg said Tuesday.

Sizemore is aware of the situation and will continue to compete in order to keep his spot on the roster.

"I play every spring regardless of what my situation is," Sizemore said. "You're fighting for a spot. No, I've been around long enough to know what I need to do and how things are going. So whatever happens moving forward, I'm good with that."


Phillies' Grady Sizemore fine after being plunked

Sizemore, 32, hit .233/.299/.354 over 347 at-bats last season.

Grady Sizemore in, Ben Revere out of Sunday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Having left-hander Alex Wood on the hill for Atlanta on Sunday might be why center fielder Ben Revere is out of the Phillies lineup, but fellow left-handed hitter Grady Sizemore has taken his place in that position and in the leadoff spot.

Sizemore has been on a roll since arriving in Philadelphia. He boasts a five-game hitting streak with five hits in his last two games.

His struggles to make consistent contact became more pronounced - he fanned 41 times in 185 at-bats.

Manager: "no restrictions" for Grady Sizmore


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Though he was out of the starting lineup to get a breather Thursday against the Twins, Red Sox manager John Farrell told MLB.com he thinks Grady Sizemore is capable of handling a full-time role at this point.

"He could have gone today. There's no doubt he was capable. To say that he's up to six or seven games a week, I think that's conceivable at this point," Farrell said. "Where we've come over the last six weeks is drastically different than coming out of Spring Training, where we had to balance a number of games per week. In my mind, there's probably no restrictions at this point."

Sizemore has already appeared in 29 games for the Red Sox, after missing three full seasons with a variety of injuries. He is hitting .243/.319/.379 in 103 at-bats for the season.
