It was announced today that the Cleveland Indians will be without star outfielder Grady Sizemore for the rest of the 2010 season . The Indians announced that Sizemore underwent micro-fracture surgery on his left knee and will be out six to nine months. All I keep thinking is so much for that supposed left knee bone bruise the team initially thought he had. What a big misdiagnosis.
I really don’t like the Indians but I honestly feel bad for the guy. Grady was just starting to entire the prime of his career (turns 28 in August) and he’s been hampered by injuries for the past two seasons. Prior to 2007 he was starting to look like a player who could become a major star for the Indians. Instead he’s had to battle injuries and now is fighting an injury that could really damage the career of a once speedy and very gifted center fielder.
The surgery was performed today by Dr. Richard Steadman and took about ninety minutes. The doctor says he should be back in time for Spring Training 2011 if things go well. In my opinion, Cleveland fans should worry some.
The name Dr. Steadman probably doesn’t ring a bell to them but he’s the doctor who performed the same surgery on New York Mets’ center fielder Carlos Beltran. And um yea, a lot of us are starting to say Carlos who?
I really hope his recovery goes a lot better then Beltran’s as Grady was definitely a more exciting player. Not sure if he’ll be able to cover center field like he once did but I sure hope he can, it was pure entertainment.
