AL Central Notes: Sizemore, Martinez, White Sox

Links from the AL Central, before the second-place Royals host the first-place Indians

  • Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore, who has returned from microfracture knee surgery, tells Yahoo’s Jeff Passan that he feels healthy again. Passan explains that there’s no guarantee Sizemore will have the same explosiveness he had early in his career, even though he has recovered from the procedure.
  • The Tigers have called up Omir Santos from Triple-A, but have yet to announce a corresponding move, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck (on Twitter). The Tigers may have to cut someone if Victor Martinez doesn't need a DL stint.
  • Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald looks at the struggling White Sox and points out that Mark Teahen has likely improved his trade value a little with his strong start. That doesn't make up for Chicago's five-game losing streak, however.

    The Tigers transferred Zumaya to the 60 day DL which should have freed up a spot on the 40 man, yeah?

    I believe you would be correct on the freed spot on the 40 man for zumaya.

    ‘the second-place Royals host the first-place Indians…’

    How weird is it to read that?

      If it were close to October it would be mind boggling…

      In April, not so much….

      Both clubs know that the world is coming to an end in 2012.
      They’re looking to win this year.

    Teahan is actually hitting well enough fit some team to trade for him. Teahan for a sold bullpen piece would work for both teams. A team that has a good pen and could use a bat. The dodgers maybe?

    They just said on Tigers Live that Victor Martinez is on the 15 day disabled list. After watching him yesterday, this is not surprising at all.

      No. He could barely run the bases. The guy if definitely a warrior though—he was hurting pretty bad and still managed to hit a single with a pulled groin. He was even fighting leyland out there on second about him yanking him from the game. Dudes a gamer, for sure.

        Why do you say no? I watched him yesterday and it was evident that he was hurt. I’m not sure what we aren’t agreeing on.

        • Pawsdeep 4 years ago

          I meant it as “no it’s not suprising”. I was agreeing with you.

          My fault for not providing a complete sentence in context, but rather a half sputtered sentence fragment full of holes.

          You’re right–he was never the most fleet of foot guy, but he was definitely hurting running the bases.

    As a sox fan I’ll never forget that either….
