Grady Sizemore reaches 1-year deal with Red Sox

Looking to add depth to the roster and create competition in spring training, the Red Sox signed outfielder Grady Sizemore Wednesday to a one-year major league contract at a base salary of $750,000 that can increase to $6 million if he stays healthy.

But, that is something Sizemore, 31, has struggled to do recently. An All-Star for the Indians from 2006-08 with two Gold Gloves, Sizemore has not appeared in a major league game since 2011. Since 2009 he has had seven surgeries including procedures on his left elbow, two for sports hernias, microfractures in both knees, including his right knee twice, the last in 2012, and a herniated disk in his lower back in 2012.
