<b>WINTER HAVEN, Fla. --</b> The Indians will have a busy weekend, playing two split-squad games…
Indians Camp Report: Grady Sizemore
Grady Sizemore went 2-for-3 at the plate, scoring one run and driving in another.
"I had to do something to make up for it," said the 21-year-old, who is expected to start the season at Class AAA Buffalo. "It felt good to contribute after looking bad on that play."
Manager Eric Wedge was impressed.
"The kid hung in there on that ball," Wedge said. "This can be a real tough sun field this time of year. There's been a lot of balls lost in the sun the past few days, but he tried to make the play. It's part of the learning experience."
Sizemore, acquired with infielder Brandon Phillips and pitcher Cliff Lee in the 2002 trade of Bartolo Colon to Montreal that triggered the Indians' rebuilding program, put up impressive numbers last year at Class AA Akron. He batted .304 with 13 homers and 78 RBIs to win the Indians' Lou Boudreau Award as the top position player in the organization.
He won the rookie of the year award in the Eastern League and was runner up for league MVP. He also won the Larry Doby Award as the MVP of the All-Star Futures game when he went 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBIs.
