Grady Sizemore Back In Indians' Lineup Against Orioles; Mitch Talbot to DL

The Cleveland Indians are one of the surprise teams in baseball starting the season 10-4, their best start since 2002. They received more good news today when Grady Sizemore was activated – returning after missing nearly a year with a knee injury that required microfracture surgery last summer.

Sizemore last played in May 2010, and has played just 139 games the past two seasons. Sizemore’s return means that Michael Brantley will move to left field – and drop in the batting order.

To make room for Sizermore, the Indians placed starter Mitch Talbot on the Disabled list with a strained right elbow. Talbot last pitched on Monday, throwing 8 shutout innings agaist the LA Angels in a 4-0 Indians win.
