Why The Grady Sizemore Experiment Should End

Grady Sizemore

Well it was a nice thought, Grady Sizemore a Major League Baseball player once again. When the Boston Red Sox saw he was making a comeback, they pounced on the low-risk, high-reward scenario by signing him to a one year deal worth $750k and adding incentives so he could potentially earn up to $6 million total.

So far this year, with the exception of Spring Training and the first few regular season games, Sizemore has been tough to watch. On the year Sizemore is hitting .216 with a .288 OBP, a pair of homeruns and five stolen bases. Since April 14th, Sizemore is hitting just .182 making it clear why Boston is not doing well this season. If Boston wants to compete this year, they will have a hard time doing so if Grady Sizemore is a regular in their outfield.

Even though the Red Sox are low on outfield depth, cutting Grady Sizemore is the best move the team could make. With Will Middlebrooks, Shane Victorino, Felix Doubront, and Clay Buchholz all rehabbing in Pawtucket, Boston will need to make a slew of  moves to put all of these men back on the roster. The way Daniel Nava is hitting, Jackie Bradley Jr is playing defense, Jonny Gomes crushes lefties, and Brock Holt is dominating every aspect of the game, Grady Sizemore is without a doubt the weak link in the Red Sox outfield. It would be in the Red Sox best interest to give Sizemore the boot, designating him for assignment, to clear a spot on the 25-man roster for Victorino and a spot on the 40-man roster for a top prospect or other potential call up.

Overall, the Grady Sizemore days in Boston are coming to a close. It was a nice thought and valid experiment by the front office, but it is clear that the experiment ultimately failed. There is a chance that he could accept Minor League assignment, play for the Pawtucket Red Sox and be a nice depth guy for the team, but with the signing of Andres Torres, it appears as though Torres is now the Red Sox Minor League depth guy in the outfield.
