The Indians have hired Grady Sizemore as an advisor to player development.
It's safe to say that his playing career is over. Sizemore was originally drafted by the Indians and made three All-Star games with the club before the injuries started to pile up. The 34-year-old didn't play professionally last year and hasn't appeared in the majors since 2015. Assuming his playing days are done, he'll finish with a .265/.349/.457 career batting line to go along with 150 homers over 1,110 games. Tue, Feb 14, 2017 10:04:00 AM

Grady Sizemore (leg) went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored on Sunday afternoon.

Sizemore was lifted from Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his right leg in the bottom of the eighth inning. The veteran outfielder only suffered a mild bruise and looked plenty healthy in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Orioles.

Grady Sizemore left Saturday's game against the Orioles with a leg contusion.

He was lifted for a pinch-runner after taking a pitch off his right leg in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old has been splitting time in left field with Brandon Guyer. The Rays are calling Sizemore day to day.

Grady Sizemore went 2-for-4 with a three-run double in Friday's win over the Orioles.

After Orioles starter Tyler Wilson loaded the bases in the fifth, Sizemore made sure he paid for his transgressions. His three-run double pushed the Rays up by a 5-3 margin and they wouldn't look back from it. The veteran outfielder is hitting .234/.292/.403 with six homers and 26 RBI this season.

Grady Sizemore went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double to help lead the Rays to a 9-6 win over the Braves.

Sizemore has four homers this month and six in 24 games since joining the Rays. He's not hitting for average and he's not drawing walks, but as long as he keeps running into one a couple of times per week, he's a useful piece. Unfortunately, he figures to lose time after Desmond Jennings returns to the Rays outfield, but perhaps a contender will want to pick him up.

Grady Sizemore went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Sizemore took Jacob deGrom deep in the fourth inning for his fourth homer of the season. He's hitting .227/.235/.455 over 164 at-bats between the Phillies and Rays this season. As with sightings of the Loch Ness Monster or Yeti, we should all enjoy the sight of Grady Sizemore homering.

Grady Sizemore ripped a game-tying solo home run, aiding in a comeback win over the White Sox on Monday.

Sizemore entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and doubled, then later scored. The next inning, he slugged a game-tying solo home run off of lefty reliever Zach Duke. Aside from a few productive games in early July shortly after joining the Rays, Sizemore hasn't done much at the plate, batting .241/.250/.448 with three home runs and eight RBI.

Rays recalled OF Grady Sizemore from Triple-A Durham.

He takes the place of Mikie Mahtook on the Rays roster. Prior to his demotion, the veteran outfielder was hitting .235/.245/.392 with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 games with the Rays.

Rays optioned OF Grady Sizemore to Triple-A Durham.

Sizemore reached base in all three plate appearances Monday but has hit just .235/.245/.392 overall for the Rays. Steven Souza (finger) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game to take Sizemore's roster spot.

Grady Sizemore is not in the Rays starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

He broke out of an 0-for-20 slump on Friday when he blasted a solo home run against Drew Hutchison, but he'll take a seat against opposing knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Joey Butler will draw the start in left field and bat second for the Rays on Saturday.

Grady Sizemore belted his second home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

His third-inning blast snapped an 0-for-20 skid. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is hitting just .238/.267/.329 with 13 RBI on the season. He has very little fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues.

Grady Sizemore continued his hot-hitting in Friday's loss to the Yankees, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

He is experiencing a nice little resurgence to begin his career with the Rays, hitting .409 (9-for-22) with a homer, four RBI and a stolen base in six games. It's extremely unlikely that he continues to be this productive, but he's worth utilizing as a fourth or fifth outfielder in deeper mixed leagues until he cools off.

Grady Sizemore went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

Facing off against his former team, Sizemore punched in runs with a pair of RBI singles in the first and sixth innings. He was released from the Phillies last month after hitting .245/.288/.296 with zero homers and six RBI in 104 plate appearances. Sizemore's picked up six hits since June 28 (when the Rays acquired him), but there's little reason to expect much fantasy juice here.

Grady Sizemore homered to break up Cody Anderson's bid for a perfect game, finishing 1-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Indians.

Sizemore drilled Anderson's offering over the fence in right field with one out in the seventh inning to end the perfecto. The veteran went 3-for-5 in his Rays debut -- and his return to the major leagues after a month-long layoff -- so things are looking up for him right now. We don't expect him to be of much fantasy utility over the long haul, though.

Grady Sizemore, in his return to the majors, went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Sizemore was released by the Phillies at the beginning of the month, then signed to a minor league deal by the Rays two weeks later. He had been with Single-A Charlotte since. The 32-year-old veteran showed he still has some life left in his bat, providing one of the Rays' three runs with an RBI single in the seventh. Sizemore hit .245/.288/.296 with no home runs and six RBI in 104 plate appearances for the Phillies earlier this year.
