Sizemore has played in just 61 games this season, and has hit .237 with 10 home runs. But his speed in center field and on the base path is an important part of the Indians attack. Still in the thick of the Central division race, the Indians will need to find a replacement for Sizemore who can bring what he brings on a reliable basis.
