Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore is hoping to rejoin the team in June.
The three-time All-Star is on the disabled list for the seventh time in four years. He jogged around Progressive Field before Cleveland played the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.
Sizemore had surgery on his lower back on March 1. He got hurt early in spring training while rehabbing from right knee surgery in October.
The 29-year-old Sizemore missed only nine games from 2005 to 2008, but has since had hernia surgery and operations on both knees and his left elbow. He played in only 33 games in 2010 and 71 a year ago.

Every one of Ubaldo Jimenez's starts have seemed like soap operas, as the big right-hander has struggled to throw strikes, keep his pitch counts down, and pitch deep into games. Jimenez was able to do all that Sunday in his best start of the season, a 4-2 decision over the Texas Rangers.
Jimenez pitched seven scoreless innings on two hits, with six strikeouts. He did walk five...

In case you are a West Virginia alumnus and thus can not read a calendar, we are now currently in the month of May. In the sporting landscape, it is an average month as football provides us with very little and that counterbalances the basketball and hockey playoffs. On the diamond, this time of year provides us with...
The red hot Cleveland Indians seem to be doing no wrong these days. Every decision Manager Manny Acta has made seems to be the right one. The right strings are being pulled. However last night, after the Indians used a little Progressive Field magic eighth inning comeback, Acta made a decision that was scrutinzed after the White Sox took the game 5-3 in 10 innings.
