Description: Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore is just 3-for-21 (.143) against White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: Sizemore played just 210 games from 2009-11 and missed all of 2012-13, so he hasn't faced Danks since 2008. The 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .308 with two homers, one steal and an .870 OPS in 11 games this year.

Description: Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer Friday against the Yankees.

Description: Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore will be given the day off Wednesday versus Texas. SOURCE: Marty Gitlin, CBS Sports
Insight: Sizemore is only a .228 career hitter against left-handers so it makes sense to sit him today against Robbie Ross (0-0, 3.60 ERA). Jackie Bradley Jr. (.400, 0 HR, 5 RBI) is filling in at center field.
 
4/5/2014 3:45:00 PM
Description: Boston center fielder Grady Sizemore is in the leadoff spot for Saturday night's game with Milwaukee.
Insight: Considering his time sidelined by injury Sizemore is off to a quick start this season (.300, 1 HR) and will get a shot at the top of the lineup. If successful this could further increase his fantasy value.

Insight: Jackie Bradley Jr. is making his first start of the season. Sizemore blasted his first home run in almost three years Monday in a 2-1 loss to Baltimore.
 
3/31/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore hit his first home run in 990 days on Opening Day against Baltimore.
Insight: His last home run in the big leagues also came at Camden Yards. He missed all of 2012 and 2013 due to injuries after playing just 104 games combined in 2010 and 2011, but he beat out Jackie Bradley Jr. for the starting job this spring.

Description: Grady Sizemore will be Boston's Opening Day center fielder, according to Gordon Edes of espnboston.com. Jackie Bradley Jr. has been demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Insight: Sizemore has hit .333 with one home run and an .842 OPS in 39 at-bats this spring. The 31-year-old Sizemore is a former 30-30 man but that was back in 2008; he missed all of the last two seasons after playing 104 games combined in 2010-11 due to injuries. Manager John Farrell said Thursday that Sizemore will hit in the middle of the order rather than leadoff, so he could have good value as a run producer.

Description: Red Sox manager John Farrell said that if CF Grady Sizemore makes the Opening Day roster, he will almost always bat in the middle of the order, not leadoff, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Sizemore has hit .306 with one home runs and a .759 OPS in 36 at-bats this spring. He's battling Jackie Bradley Jr. (.167 this spring) for the starting center-field job. The 31-year-old Sizemore is a former 30-30 man but that was back in 2008; he missed all of the last two seasons after playing 104 games combined in 2010-11 due to injuries.
 
2/27/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore played left field and went 0-for-2 in his first action since 2011.
Insight: The 31-year-old once posted a 30-30 season, but that was a lieftime ago - in 2008. It remains to be seen if he can help the Red Sox or fantasy owners this season.

Description: In a surprise move, the Red Sox and outfielder Grady Sizemore have agreed to a one-year, $750,000 deal. SOURCE: Rob Bradford, WEEI
Insight: It's a major league deal, which means Sizemore could compete with Jackie Bradley Jr. for the starting center field job out of spring training. The 31-year-old used to steal tons of bases (38 in 2008) but he hasn't played in the big leagues since 2011. It will be interesting to see what he has left in the tank. We wouldn't rule Sizemore out as a fantasy option just yet.
 
12/10/2013 9:48:00 AM
Description: Free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore says he wants to play in 2014, according to Indians beat writer Paul Hoynes.
Insight: Sizemore hasn't played in the big leagues since 2011 and hasn't been a fantasy star since 2008. He'll have to show me something before I get excited about a comeback.

Description: Minnesota could be interested in signing free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore. SOURCE: Nick Camino, WTAM 1100
Insight: Sizemore hasn't played in the big leagues since 2011. He used to be a 30/30 threat but now the best he could hope for is a spot at the end of someone's bench.
 
12/20/2012 9:47:00 PM
Description: Kevin Burkhardt of SNY reports that the Mets are looking at free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore.
Insight: Sizemore could have had a great career if he had just stayed healthy. Unfortunately he didn't and at age 30, it'd be silly for the Mets to offer the underachieving Sizemore anything more than a minor league contract. Sizemore missed the entire 2012 campaign while recovering from knee surgery.
 
4/18/2012 9:18:00 PM
Description: Grady Sizemore (back) has been cleared to initiate baseball activity next week.
Insight: Perhaps there a those who drafted Sizemore in the first round in 2009 who are still looking for a return on that investment, but other than those people nobody should be looking at Sizemore for OF help in 2012.
 
3/2/2012 10:00:00 AM
Description: Grady Sizemore underwent microfracture surgery and is expected to miss two-to-three months.
Insight: Sizemore played just 71 games last season and this latest blow means it will likely be another "lost" season for the three-time All-Star. After his 2008 season of 33 HR and 38 SB, Sizemore was a first-round fantasy selection, but in 2012 you should look in another direction entirely.
 
6/8/2011 8:00:00 PM
Description: Grady Sizemore hit his seventh homer of the year in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.
Insight: Grady is having a nice year thus far, but his track record tells us that an injury is coming.

Description: Grady Sizemore could be activity's from the disabled list tomorrow against the Rays. SOURCE: Indians.mlb.com
Insight: Sizemore will return this weekend at the latest. He has hit six homers in just 18 games and is a valuable player to the Indians, so monitor his progress and start him accordingly.
 
5/26/2011 7:57:00 AM
Description: The Indians are expected to activate OF Grady Sizemore from the DL for Friday's game. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: If you play in weekly leagues watch Sizemore in action this weekend to make sure he is healthy enough to activate for next week's scoring period.
 
5/25/2011 8:15:00 AM
Description: Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore ran harder than he has since injuring his right knee while sliding and is close to returning to Cleveland's lineup. Sizemore went on the disabled list last week with a bruised kneecap. He ran sprints in the outfield at close to full speed on Tuesday before the Indians hosted Boston. Trainer Lonnie Soloff supervised Sizemore as he went through drills. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Because of his injury risk you really can not count on Sizemore as anything more than a #3/4 outfielder in mixed leagues. If he produces more than that then you get great value from him.
 
5/22/2011 5:52:00 AM
Description: Indians OF Grady Sizemore should be back for the Indians fairly quickly. 'Grady is swinging the bat very well in batting practice,' Acta said. 'He's doing most of the activities that the last week or so were bothering him a little bit'"bending over and moving side-to-side and that. So we're anticipating him to be ready really soon.' SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Sizemore had cooled after a torrid start. Count on him for a .260 average with 15 home runs and anything above that is a bonus.
