Grady Sizemore’s agent, Joe Urbon, confirmed that the former Cleveland Indians outfielder had microfracture surgery on his right knee this past September. Sizemore previously had microfracture surgery on his left knee in 2010, one of the several operations he has undergone since his stretch of MVP-like performances between 2006-2008. Though Sizemore missed all of the 2012 season after injuring his back in Spring Training, it appears that the knee was a continual source of pain and frustration throughout the year. Urbon reportedly stated that this microfracture surgery was “a lot less invasive” than Sizemore’s first, but the player understands the bid to return to the field is going to be a long process given his recent history. Returning to the field, however, continues to be a priority for the 30-year-old free agent who has played in Cleveland every year of his professional career. “[Sizemore] has a good mindset,” Urbon said. “He knows what to expect and what each step brings. “He has every intention of coming back when he’s 100 percent, and not a day sooner.” Since playing in 162, 162 and 157 games, respectively, Sizemore has combined to play in 210 games over the last three seasons.
