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.
Jan 12 - 4:51 PM

Yankees signed INF Scott Sizemore to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The signing was first reported to be close by the New York Post's Ken Davidoff, and now FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says it's official. Sizemore is coming off back-to-back lost seasons due to a tear and re-tear of the ACL in his left knee. He's healthy now, though, and lands in a good spot with the Yankees needing depth both at second and third base.
Jan 12 - 11:56 AM

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the Yankees are "closing in" on a minor league deal with Scott Sizemore.

Sizemore is coming off back-to-back lost seasons due to a tear and re-tear of the ACL in his left knee. However, he's a former top prospect and just turned 29 earlier this month, so he's a worthy gamble on a non-guaranteed deal. Sizemore also lands in a good spot with the Yankees, as the Bombers are currently slated to go into the year with the injury-prone Brian Roberts as their second baseman.
Jan 12 - 8:53 AM

Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Marlins have had internal discussions about offering Scott Sizemore a minor league contract.

It makes sense, as Sizemore could compete with Donovan Solano, Ed Lucas and Derek Dietrich for starting jobs at either second base or the hot corner. The 28-year-old might struggle to find a guaranteed contract after missing almost two full seasons due to multiple ACL injuries.

Scott Sizemore has elected free agency.

The 28-year-old infielder has had his career derailed by multiple ACL injuries, appearing in just 2 games the past two seasons. Still an intriguing blend of power and speed, he could make for an interesting flyer for teams searching for infield depth.
Fri, Nov 22, 2013 06:46:00 PM

Athletics activated INF Scott Sizemore from the 60-day disabled list.

Sizemore missed a second straight season after re-tearing his ACL last spring. The anticipation at this time is that he'll be ready for spring training.
