Signed OF-L Grady Sizemore to a one-year deal potentially worth $6 million. [1/22]

Here's a hail mary attempt. Sizemore last played in the majors in 2011, heaving missed the past two seasons due to back and knee surgeries. He's 31 years old now, and without a 500-plate appearance season to his name since 2009; there's no telling how he'd would perform if he were to stay healthy enough to make it through camp. (Heck, even Boston is hedging its bet by guaranteeing just $1 million.) Yet, for all the merited skepticism, you can't help but hope we get another healthy season from Sizemore someday. He'll never turn the clock back to the days when he was one of the premiere talents in the game, but maybe he'll provide us with a few glimpses. You hope so, for his sake. —R.J. Anderson
