Early Season Injury Could Have Long Term Effects To Bullpen

February 27, 2012 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

It is way too early in the Indians’ season to panic, but now might be a good time to start to have some concern about the Tribe’s season.  A team cursed by injuries in 2011 seems to have forgotten to turn the page on the calendar.

Friday it was announced that Grady Sizemore has suffered a lower back strain and would be unavailable for Opening Day. Yesterday it was revealed that closer Chris Perez has suffered an left oblique strain and will be out for 4-6 weeks, however, he was not ruled out for Opening Day since closers have much less endurance and need less time to prepare for the season.

Fred Lewis is definitely one of the longshots to make the Indians roster, even after Grady Sizemore went down with his back injury.

The Indians are Lewis’s fourth team in as many years. He began his career with the San Francisco Giants in 2002, when he was drafted in the second round. He made his major league debut in 2006. Many people remember that he hit for the cycle while playing in only his 16th game. His first career home run came as a part of that cycle.

By Tschanen Brandyberry

Grady Sizemore started the 2011 season on the DL and it looks like he might kick off 2012 there, too. However the move could mean the difference between spending Opening Day at AAA-Columbus or in Cleveland for Lonnie Chisenhall.

The Indians announced Friday that Sizemore was being shut down from baseball activities. According to reports on Twitter by those covering spring training and the organization, the centerfielder strained his back two weeks ago while fielding ground balls.

February 24, 2012 |

By Sean Tuttle
