Red Sox sign Sizemore to one-year deal

On Wednesday, January 22, 2014, the Boston Red Sox signed Grady to a one-year major league contract worth a base of $750k, possibly earning $6 million with incentives.

Once a rising star, Sizemore has been plagued by a barrage of injuries and has had numerous surgeries in recent years, including microfracture surgery on both knees.

But Sizemore thinks he is ready to start spending his time on the field instead of the training table.

“So far I’ve been pretty much going through a normal offseason — running, training, doing baseball stuff, throwing and hitting,” Sizemore said. “When I come to camp, I should be ready to go and fit right in and just kind of get my legs underneath me and go from there.”

If Sizemore can stay healthy, he at least has a chance to win a starting job. Prospect Jackie Bradley Jr. will be his top competition in center field.
