The Cleveland Indians, who were once thought to be a contender in the American League Central after another good start to the season, announced that outfielder Grady Sizemore will not return this season.Sizemore, who signed a one-year deal this off season worth $5 million, was trying to make a return this year after undergoing a micro discectomy procedure on his lower back in early March. He was expected to miss eight to twelve weeks, but was forced to stop his rehab after experiencing different aches and pains.
Over the past two years, the Indians outfielder has had surgery on both knees, his abdomen and back. His recent quote about his body pretty much sums up how he feels on an everyday basis.
I’m not physically able to play. There’s never a day when I’m not sore. Every day there is some kind of pain. It’s hard to know what normal feels like, I’ve had so many issues.
