Sizemore ‘forgotten man’ so far this spring

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Grady Sizemore has become a bit of a forgotten ballplayer with the Phillies this spring.

The Phillies made bringing back Sizemore a priority, signing him to a one-year, $2 million contract in mid-October. But the 32-year-old Sizemore hasn’t been getting much time with the regulars in Grapefruit League games. He didn’t play in Wednesday’s 7-1 loss to the Astros, one day after making the trip to Lake Buena Vista only to enter the game against the Braves as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning.

Sizemore makes spring debut for Sox

Thursday marked the first game action of any kind for Grady Sizemore since September of 2011.  That’s nearly 900 days away from the game for the former Gold-Glove outfielder.  He went hitless in 2 at bats from the leadoff spot, playing 3 innings in left field for the defending champs against the Northeastern University Huskies.  It was a rather uneventful day, which is a good thing for the oft-injured Sizemore.

Check out photos from Thursdays action in our Galleries, and see what Grady had to say about getting back into action below.

Grady SizemoreSizemore smiles for the fans and seems in a good enough mood, but something doesn’t feel quite right. His mother, Donna, says he’s naturally shy and likes to keep to himself, so all the attention could be adding to the discomfort. But that’s not why he feels weird.

“It feels really good,” he said. “But it feels weird to put the uniform on again.”
