Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the Athletics have decided against signing Scott Sizemore.

Slusser reported over the weekend that the A's have had conversations with Sizemore's agent, but nothing is considered imminent. However, they are still open to the idea of a reunion for 2015. The 29-year-old went 5-for-16 (.313) with four RBI in six games with the Yankees before being cut loose late last month.
Aug 4 - 4:41 PM

The Oakland Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports the Athletics "had conversations" with the agent of veteran free agent infielder Scott Sizemore even before Nick Punto's hamstring injury on Saturday.

Punto is headed to the disabled list, and Oakland needs to replace him on the roster with a versatile infielder. One option is simply recalling Andy Parrino. Another is signing Sizemore, a former Athletic who was released by the Yankees earlier this week. The 29-year-old appeared went 5-for-16 (.313) with four RBI in six games with New York.
Aug 2 - 7:50 PM

Susan Slusser of the Oakland Chronicle reports that the Athletics are considering bringing back veteran infielder Scott Sizemore who was recently released by the Yankees.

The 29-year-old appeared in just six games with the Yankees this season, going 5-for-16 (.313) with four RBI. He would add additional versatility and infield depth should the Athletics opt for the reunion.
Aug 2 - 11:29 AM

Yankees released INF Scott Sizemore.

Sizemore had an underwhelming .272/.332/.424 batting line in 268 plate appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. But the 29-year-old infielder should be able to find a new minor league contract rather quickly.
Jul 31 - 3:27 PM

Yankees optioned INF Scott Sizemore to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Sizemore was designated for assignment through optional waivers on Thursday morning. The 29-year-old utility infielder hit .313 with a .750 OPS in 16 plate appearances during his short stay with the major league club. He could get a longer look later this summer.
Jun 5 - 1:21 PM

Yankees designated INF Scott Sizemore for assignment.

The Yankees needed to clear out a roster spot for Carlos Beltran, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. Sizemore, 29, was batting .313 with a .750 OPS in 16 plate appearances for New York. He can elect to become a free agent.
Jun 5 - 11:09 AM

Yankees recalled INF Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Sizemore will make the start at third base on Tuesday night. The 29-year-old had a brief stint with the Yankees back in April and was batting .265/.333/.361 with one home run and 16 RBI over 40 games in Triple-A.
Jun 3 - 3:35 PM

Yankees optioned INF Scott Sizemore to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He picked up four hits and drove in four runs in 13 plate appearances, but the Yankees needed to clear roster space in order to add some bullpen help. Sizemore should be back up again this summer.
Apr 20 - 10:49 AM

Scott Sizemore had a three-run double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Rays.

Sizemore made his first major league start at first base on Thursday, but he was back at third base for Friday's game. It looks like the Yankees will mix him in against left-handers, so there's a good chance he'll be in the lineup Sunday against Cesar Ramos. He could be worth a temporary look in AL-only leagues.
Apr 19 - 12:22 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of INF Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Sizemore will add some depth and versatility to the banged up Yankees' infield. The 29-year-old owns a .238/.328/.381 batting line over 160 games in the majors. He has played just two games on the big league level since 2011 due to knee injuries.
Apr 15 - 12:45 PM

The Yankees are expected to call up Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He'll have to be added to the 40-man roster. Sizemore is a logical candidate for a call-up with the Yankees right now, as he has experience between second and third base.
Apr 15 - 11:55 AM

Scott Sizemore doubled and walked in his two plate appearances off the bench on Thursday.

Sizemore was making his second appearance of the spring, as the Yankees have gone easy with him as he completed his recovery from ACL surgery. Expectations are that he'll open the season in Triple-A, but he could get a chance to start in the Yankees' infield at some point.
Mar 6 - 5:50 PM

Scott Sizemore (knee) isn't expected to play in Grapefruit League games until the end of the week or the beginning of next week.

Sizemore's recovery from a second ACL surgery has gone well to this point, but the Yankees want to ease him into things. He'll likely begin this season in the minors as he attempts to knock some rust off, but it's possible he could be an option at second base for the Yanks sooner rather than later.
Feb 24 - 6:52 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York post reports that Scott Sizemore's minor league deal with the Yankees includes a pair of opt-out clauses.

Sizemore has the option to opt-out of the deal on May 1 and August 1 if he is not in the majors. The 29-year-old infielder has always possessed a decent blend of power and speed and could be a sneaky option in the later rounds of mixed league drafts should he secure the Yankees starting job at third base.
