Reds have inquired on Sizemore

It’s been rather quiet this week, as you well know. I checked in today with Reds GM Walt Jocketty and asked about various topics — some of which will be included in a story shortly on

One of the nuggets is that the Reds have explored adding former Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore, currently a free agent.

“We have [talked],” Jocketty said. “I’m not sure where that is right now. With the holidays, not much has happened.”

A former three-time All-Star with Cleveland from 2006-08, Sizemore hasn’t played in the big leagues since 2011. He’s been oft-injured, including having microfracture surgeries on both of his knees.

Jocketty believed Sizemore was healthy to try and resume his career.

“We think so. He appears to be,” he said.

The Reds are still going forward with plans to have Billy Hamilton be the leadoff hitter and center fielder that replaces Shin-Soo Choo. If they were to add a guy like Sizemore, it would be as protection.

With an extremely incentive-laden contract, that could be a really nice fit.
