Indians Decline Option on Sizemore, Acquire Derek Lowe

Comstock/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) -- The Cleveland Indians made a few roster moves Monday, acquiring starting pitcher Derek Lowe from the Atlanta Braves and declining their 2012 option on center fielder Grady Sizemore.

Sizemore's career has been hampered by injuries over the past three years.  His best season came in 2008, when he hit 33 home runs, drove in 90 runs, and stole 38 bases.

Lowe was 9-17 with a 5.05 ERA last season.  The Braves received minor league pitcher Chris Jones in return for Lowe.

The Indians also exercised their $7 million option on starting pitcher Fausto Carmona.
