Sizemore Staying in Cleveland

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Three-time All-Star outfielder Grady Sizemore and the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a one-year contract that could be worth as much as $9 million.

The deal includes a base pay of $5 million and another $4 million in incentives based on plate appearances.

Sizemore has had trouble staying on the field the past three seasons, playing in only 210 games. He has undergone five surgeries over the last two years.

The Indians are hoping Sizemore can resemble the player he was from 2005-2008, when he slugged 97 home runs and won two Gold Glove awards.
