John Farrell has long history with Grady Sizemore

John Farrell has been watching Grady Sizemore play since 2002, Farrell’s first season as the Cleveland Indians’ director of player development. It was in that year that Sizemore crashed into a brick wall making a catch in a minor league game and kept playing for two weeks before doctors determined he had a broken arm.

“A special guy,” said Farrell. “He was as good as anybody for a few years with the Indians.”
