It was recently reported that free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore resumed baseball-related activities. While this would indicate he's approaching his return to full health, Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reports that Sizemore is still "a ways away from getting on the field." For those asking about FA Grady Sizemore w/ Hicks hurt, I checked today. He's still "a ways away from getting on the field," per a source. — Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) June 11, 2013 Sizemore was pursued by teams this winter despite the fact that he didn't play in the majors last season due to injury. While clubs were willing to sign him to an incentive-laden contract, allowing him time to rehab, Sizemore said he wouldn't sign his next deal until after he was fully recovered. This was expected to happen around the All-Star break, and that still appears to be the case. The Minnesota Twins are one of the teams that are expected to express interest in Sizemore when he does make himself available, and with Aaron Hicks' recent injury there was talk that they could look to sign him sooner than later as a fill-in option. However, Wolfson says that Sizemore isn't close to returning, shutting down this option for Minnesota. Sizemore has spent his entire professional career with the Cleveland Indians. He was one of the top young infielders in the majors from 2005-09, but injuries have limited him to 104 games over the past three seasons. The 30-year-old owns a career batting line of .269/.285/.422 over eight seasons. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
