Grady Sizemore of Boston Red Sox pays return visit to Cleveland

CLEVELAND – Grady Sizemore glanced out toward center field, where he roamed for nearly eight seasons and had more than a few run-ins with the padded wall.

On Monday, Sizemore’s long, painful return to the majors brought him back to Cleveland.

“It still feels like home,” said the 31-year-old graduate of Cascade High School in Everett.

A three-time All-Star with the Indians, Sizemore was at Progressive Field for the first time as a visitor. Signed as a free agent by Boston in January, Sizemore is healthy after missing two full seasons because of microfracture surgery on his right knee and other medical issues. He has had seven operations since 2009.

“I’ve slowly progressed every day and not had any setbacks,” Sizemore said of his health.

From the visitors’ dugout, he said “it feels weird being back and being on the other side.”

Boston lost to the Indians 3-2, ending its winning streak at seven. Right fielder Sizemore was 0 for 4, dropping his average to .226.

Notes

• The Los Angeles Angels’ lineup is expected to be at full strength for the first time since the opening week of the season when the team begins a three-game series against the Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Tuesday.

Left fielder Josh Hamilton, out since April 9 because of a torn ligament in his left thumb, will be activated, and center fielder Mike Trout is expected back after sitting out for two games because of back stiffness. Trout leads AL players in balloting for the July 15 All-Star Game in Minneapolis.

• First baseman Jon Singleton, rated among the game’s top prospects, has agreed to a five-year contract and is expected to make his major-league debut for Houston on Tuesday. Singleton has hit .267 with 14 homers for Class AAA Oklahoma City; he was suspended for 50 games last season because of a second failed drug test.
