Grady Sizemore Injury: Indians Put Injury-Plagued Outfielder On 60-Day Disabled List

The Cleveland Indians have to trim their 40-man roster by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, to make room for Dan Wheeler and Jose Lopez who made the team as minor league invitees. With two players needing to be taken off the roster, the first move came this afternoon when the Tribe announced that perpetually injured center fielder Grady Sizemore would be put on the 60-day disabled list. Sizemore missed all of spring training after back surgery in February.

When news first came down about the back injury, it was expected that he would miss four to eight weeks. Well, now we have official confirmation that he will miss at least the first two months of the season. The earliest he could return is June 3rd, and that's if he doesn't experience any setbacks in his rehab.

The Indians still have to designate one more player for assignment to finalize the roster this evening.
