We’re Not Going Down Without A Fight, Mets Interested In Sizemore!
Sorry for the dramatics… I’m just practicing for the year when we can actually use exclamation points again in our titles…
SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt reports that the Mets are “very interested” in center fielder Grady Sizemore.
Sizemore underwent microfracture right knee surgery in September and will be unavailable until midway through the 2013 season. He attempted to work his way back from the knee injuries that have plagued his career since 2009 and avoid the surgery, but he missed the entire 2012 season in the process. This was a similar procedure to what Carlos Beltran had.
The 30-year-old has played in just 210 games since 2009 with a .234/.314/.413 slash during that span with 28 home runs and 109 RBI.
Barring any setbacks, he’s expected to resume baseball activities in June.
