Indians Among Teams Interested In Grady Sizemore, Along With Yankees, Cubs, Others

Though the Cleveland Indians didn't exercise a $9 million option on Grady Sizemore earlier this year, they could still be interested in him. The news to not exercise the option drew a negative, but unsurpised reaction from the fanbase. Either way, it does look like the Indians still will have interest in bringing him back at a lower price, but there will be some competition.

From Paul Hoynes on Twitter:

ESPN reporting Texas, Yankees, Cubs, Giants, Phillies and Red Sox have interest in Grady Sizemore. #Indians have an interest as well.    

Grady spent a good portion of his time in recent years under the knife, with five surgeries in three years (two sports hernias, both knees and elbow). The $9 million that the Indians decided they couldn't devote to him was much too much, but it makes an awful lot of sense for multiple teams to be interested in seeing Sizemore work out. Maybe the center fielder will come cheap and a team will take a chance on his injury history.
