Grady Sizemore Heads To DL; David Huff Called Up From Columbus

Just as Grady Sizemore was starting to hit again, his troublesome right knee broke down…again. The Cleveland Indians placed their oft-injured centerfielder on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right knee. Pitcher David Huff was called up to replace him and will start the first game of Monday’s day-night doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins.

Huff, who has made 38 starts in the majors, is 2-5 with a 6.57 ERA in seven career matchups with Minnesota. He was 8-3 with a 3.86 ERA in 17 games at Columbus this season.

Sizemore left the 1st inning of Sunday’s 8-3 loss in Baltimore with what the team called a knee contusion. It is similar to the injury Sizemore suffered earlier in the season that forced him to miss two weeks.

The setback comes during a hot streak for Sizemore, who has hit .400 (8-for-20) with two homers, two doubles and four RBIs over his past six games, including Sunday. On the season, the center fielder has hit .234 with 10 homers and 29 RBIs in 60 games for Cleveland.

It is the third stint on the DL for Sizemore this year.
