Grady Sizemore signs a six-year, $23.45 million contract with the Cleveland Indians. Sizemore was called a “once in a generation player” by Mark Shapiro, but after three solid seasons he suffered several nagging injuries. The last three years of the contract saw him on the disabled list for a bulk of the time and he did not play at all in 2012 and 2013. Sizemore signed a deal with the Boston Red Sox for the upcoming 2014 season. He has not played in a Major League Baseball game since September 22, 2011.
