Last we heard from former Cleveland Indians All-Star Grady Sizemore, he was eyeing a mid-season return to the game when he was healthy enough to compete again. Per a Boston Globe report by Nick Cafardo today, it appears that the 30-year-old has indeed resumed activities. Here’s his tidbit when discussing Boston’s plans and other notable acquisitions on the market: 6. Grady Sizemore, OF, free agent — It shouldn’t be long before a long list of teams start to inquire about Sizemore. He’s begun baseball activities after missing all this time with knee surgeries, and so far he’s had no setbacks. Sizemore was once one of the great talents in the game, and it appears he’s working his way back and could help teams needing outfield help (Mets?) for the second half of the season. The Mets were a team that was previously linked to Sizemore at the 2012 Winter Meetings. Oddly enough, they previously competed against the Indians for the rights to Michael Bourn, but didn’t make as steep an offer because of their No. 11 first-round draft pick. Sizemore has played in just 104 games since the start of the 2010 season. He was an All-Star for Cleveland from 2006-2008, producing at a clip of .279/.380/.499 with an average of 42 doubles, 28 homers, 81 RBI and 31 steals per season. He even appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. But then the injury bug began in 2009, and he’s never been the same player ever since. The Indians gave him a reaffirmation of their belief with a $5 million contract for the 2012 season, but Sizemore never appeared on the field. As of now, it’s certainly unlikely that GM Chris Antonetti and the team would be interested in his services again. [Related: 2013 MLB Draft: Indians look to buck trend with No. 5 pick]
