After having his $8.5 million 2012 club option declined by the Cleveland Indians, it appears Grady Sizemore has found his first suitor in the Colorado Rockies. According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Colorado Rockies have expressed interest in the free agent outfielder.
While the Rockies are looking to improve their lineup, Renck says the club will exhaust its options on Martin Prado before moving in on Sizemore. We heard the Rockies/Prado rumor only two days ago.
"Atlanta is seeking outfield help, and has interest in the Rockies' Seth Smith. Moving him could create a spot for the left-handed hitting Sizemore."
ESPN's Keith Law ranked (insider subscription required) Grady Sizemore as the 25th best free agent this offseason. Also adding that "there's an upside play as a left fielder who can get on base and might hit 20 homers."
Well, what do you think? Sizemore seems like your typical high-risk, high-reward play...but for what he could do on a one-year deal between $5-8 million is very enticing.
