The New York Mets are apparently very interested in signing 30-year-old, injury-prone outfielder, Grady Sizemore, according to Kevin Burkhardt of SNY.

Once touted as a franchise player for the Cleveland Indians, Sizemore has suffered from constant injuries since 2009 and missed the entire 2012 season coming off of microfracture surgery to his right knee.

Prior to 2009, Sizemore was a multi-tool threat in the middle of the Cleveland lineup.  The three-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger averaged 27 home runs, 81 RBI, 116 runs scored with 29 stolen bases from 2005-2008.  

When healthy, it's fair to say that Grady can not only hit, but is a threat on the basepaths and can field an exceptional game in the outfield.

Sizemore has also been drawing interest from other clubs, but according to MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince, he probably won't be considered a real option for any team until midseason.  

The Boston Red Sox (via Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald), and a few other teams (via Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer), have also show interest in Sizemore this offseason, but will probably only consider a minor-league contract or a major-league deal with incentives.  

Though the Cleveland Indians seem open to bringing Sizemore back, it looks like the free-agent outfielder will most likely be wearing a new jersey for the first time since breaking into the big leagues in 2001.  

Where do you think Sizemore will end up?
