Grady Sizemore has Back Surgery, To Miss 8-12 Weeks

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Cleveland Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore is headed to the disabled list again. The team announced Sizemore had lower back surgery Thursday, and is expected to miss the next 8-12 weeks of the season.

The 29-year old Sizemore was considered by many as an up and coming star, but the past three seasons he has dealt with a variety of injuries that have kept him off the field.

The Indians re-signed Sizemore in November to a one-year $5 million dollar contract that with incentives could be worth as much as $9 million dollars.

Sizemore has now had five operations in the last two years.
