— ESPN’s Buster Olney provides the latest update on Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore’s ongoing health issues. Just back on July 3, general manager Chris Antonetti shared that Sizemore was hitting and throwing, but had yet to run. It appears that is still an issue, per the latest from Olney. It now appears doubtful that the Indians will get much at all from their $5 million offseason investment.
