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.

He made 52 appearances with the Red Sox before being released last week, hitting .216/.288/.324 with two home runs, 15 RBI and five stolen bases in 185 at-bats. His numbers declined precipitously in June, when he was just 4 for 30 with one double.


Grady Sizemore clears waivers for free agent status


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Outfielder Grady Sizemore has cleared waivers after his release from the Red Sox and will now embark on free agency.

Sizemore, who fought his way back from multiple surgeries to earn a start spot in spring training, couldn't maintain his production after a strong start. He finished his stint with a stat line of .214/.288/.324 and managed just four hits in his last 30 at-bats. His struggles to make consistent contact became more pronounced - he fanned 41 times in 185 at-bats.

Grady Sizemore scores twice in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Sizemore scored twice in the win, despite batting in the bottom third of the order. He went 2 for 4 with a stolen base, and was brought around to score once in the fourth and again in the fifth inning.

Sizemore hasn't quite found his former form this season, but he has been remarkably productive after missing two entire seasons of action. He is hitting .232/.302/.355 in 155 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. 


Grady Sizemore gets a rest Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore is not in the team's starting lineup Thursday.

Grady Sizemore drives in game-winner in extras


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore put together his second multi-hit performance in a row Tuesday, in a 4-3 win over the Reds.

Sizemore went 3 for 6 in the game, and his last hit was certainly the biggest. He drove in the winning run in the 12th inning, with a single to center field that drove in David Ortiz. He added another RBI single earlier in the game.

Sizemore is hitting .242/.314/.385 in 91 at-bats this season, his first in the majors since 2011.


Grady Sizemore plates two in win over Blue Jays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore had just one hit, but he reached base three times in a 7-6 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Grady Sizemore sits again Friday against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Spring and early-season phenom Grady Sizemore is apparently settling into a platoon role for the Red Sox. The outfielder is out of the lineup Friday night against a left-hander for the second straight game.

Sizemore, who is in a 2-for-31 slide to lower his batting average to .212, has actually hit better against southpaws this season. He is 5 for 18 aganst them.


Manager: Grady Sizemore best-suited for lower in lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) John Farrell said Wednesday that slumping Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore could be destined for the fifth, sixth or seventh spot in the lineup, WEEI.com has reported.

Sizemore has batted leadoff in each of his last four games and has been placed either there or fifth in every lineup since April 5. But he has struggled mightily since a two-hit game on April 9 raised his batting average to .343. He has one hit in his last 26 at-bats since and has struck out five times in the last four games.

Farrell is hoping to keep Sizemore in the same spot. "Lineup continuity ... is a priority," he said. "That's been hard to accomplish."


Grady Sizemore smacks three-run home run Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore went 2 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 4-2 win over the Yankees Friday.

Sizemore, who is likely the very early favorite to win the Comeback Player of the Year award, has excelled at the plate, hitting .333/.394/.600 with two home runs, four RBI and one stolen base in 30 at-bats. He was given the day off Saturday, as he isn't in the team's starting lineup for its next game against the Yankees.


Red Sox reconsidering starting outfield alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell said he will consider an outfield alignment of Shane Victorino, Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley once Victorino returns from the disabled list. Farrell said he's considering the alignment because there's a "premium on defense," per MassLive.com.

Grady Sizemore sits Wednesday against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore, who has taken the momentum gained in spring training and run with it into the regular season, is not in the lineup for the Wednesday game against Texas left-hander Robbie Ross.

Sizemore boats a stat line of .364/.440/.591 in 22 at-bats to start the season. But he will likely be sidelined often against southpaws, against whom he has traditionally struggled.


John Farrell to rest David Ortiz, Grady Sizemore this weekend


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) The day off for Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was planned. The tightness in his calf he has been experiening for weeks was not the primary reason for his absence in the Saturday lineup, John Farrell told WEEI.com.

Farrell is merely giving his veteran starters occasional rest. Grady Sizemore is expected to sit on Sunday in the series finale against Milwaukee.


Grady Sizemore in familiar leadoff spot Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) It took all of one week for John Farrell to get Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore into his familiar leadoff spot. He has been placed in that lineup spot Saturday against Milwaukee. Sizemore was a premier leadoff hitter for Cleveland before a spate of injuries threatened to end his career.

Sizemore, who is unlikely to make that his permanent spot until at least later in the season, is batting .300 with one home run in 10 at-bats to start the season. Also impressive is that he has fanned just twice in 12 plate appearances.


Grady Sizemore finds his way back to the starting lineup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore has returned to the lineup Friday.

Grady Sizemore sitting Thursday against Orioles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) The desire to keep Grady Sizemore fresh and his traditional struggles against left-handed pitching resulted in his benching by the Red Sox for their Thursday game against Wei-Yin Chen and the Orioles. Jackie Bradley will replace him in center field.

Sizemore, who took a huge step in a remarkable comeback from multiple surgeries, is coming off an 0 for 4 performance with a strikeout to lower his batting average to .250.


Grady Sizemore homers on Opening Day


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore rewarded manager John Farrell for designated him as a starter Monday by going 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 2-1 loss to the Orioles.

It was Sizemore's first regular-season action since September 2011 and his first home run since July 15, 2011, as he completes a comeback from multiple knee surgeries. Sizemore hit sixth in the lineup but has the potential to move up if he can continue to shine offensively.


Grady Sizemore completes comeback; will start for Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) The worst-kept secret is out: Grady Sizemore is the new starting center fielder for the Red Sox. John Farrell made that proclamation Friday, per ESPN.

Sizemore, who thoroughly outplayed Jackie Bradley in the spring competition, has completed a remarkable comeback from multiple knee surgeries that have prevented him from participating in a major league game since 2011. His last full season was 2008.

The 31-year-old Sizemore was a perennial all-star and among the most well-rounded stars in the sport before his spate of injuries. He averaged 116 runs and 81 RBI as the Indians leadoff hitter from 2005 to 2008. His bugaboo has been making consistent contact - Sizemore fanned at least 130 times in each of those years.

Sizemore will not lead off for the Red Sox. Farrell announced he will bat fifth or sixth to start the 2014 season.


Grady Sizemore likely to require frequent days off


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Red Sox likely center field starter and unlikely comeback candidate Grady Sizemore played in the first of three straight exhibition games Tuesday before getting a day off Saturday. That could be the pattern for Sizemore, whose injury history might indeed require a couple days off per week.

So when John Farrell announced that there was still "a lot of internal discussion on who our starting center field is going to be," the Boston Globe speculated that merely meant they will need a viable option when Sizemore sits.

That option will probably not be Jackie Bradley, who has suffered through a brutal spring. The Red Sox would prefer Bradley gain daily playing experience at Triple-A Pawtucket.
