Sizemore trying to rehab and compete at the same time

Scott Sizemore

In a camp with Derek Jeter and Masahiro Tanaka — and Jacoby Ellsbury and CC Sabathia and Carlos Beltran and … — Scott Sizemore is pretty easy to overlook. He’s a relatively small name with baseball’s biggest team, but he’s come to spring training with a chance to play a role in the big leagues as a platoon third baseman and a potential backup at second.

Sizemore“(The Yankees) seemed like they had a need for me, and they had a lot of interest in bringing me in,” Sizemore said. “To me that just said that they had a plan for me possibly, so if I could show that I’m healthy and can get back on the field and perform like I need to, they said I should have a shot to help the big team out at some point this year.”

The key phrase here might be, “at some point.”

Although Sizemore said he’s hoping to ready to play in the first game of the spring, it’s clear that he’s still working through some rehabilitation after tearing his ACL in each of the past two years.

“Obviously I want to show the staff that I’m healthy and ready to go,” Sizemore said. “But at the same time, you have to be smart and realize this is a 162-game season, and I’m not going to be able to get it all in early. So I just have to kind of balance it out, talk with the training staff, the strength coaches, and just communicate with them the best I can how I’m feeling and what they think I should be doing. Kind of put my trust in them, and I think my body will take care of itself.”

Sizemore seems like a pretty good fit for the Yankees needs. He’s hit .272/.357/.422 against big league lefties in his career, and he has plenty of experience at both second and third, but he’s hardly played the past two years because of nearly identical ACL injuries. Sizemore said he feels healthy, but he also hasn’t done a ton to test it.

“Physically I think I’m pretty much there,” he said. “But just getting back into game speed, game mode, probably going to take a little bit of time.”

Sizemore can opt out of his contract, but not until May 1, so he will accept an assignment to Triple-A if he doesn’t break camp with the Yankees.

“If they have a need for me, if someone goes down, then I’d like to be the next guy they call on to step in and fill that gap,” Sizemore said.

    Stones-

    Maybe the Yankees will grab the Cuban ?

    Also, I fully expect them to grab Dermis Garcia during the IFA signing period.

    There is a fairly long list of decent targets to fill SS or 3b between now and next year.

    *******

    No doubt. What if the Yanks go H2D on us: Headley, Hardy, and Diaz going into 2015

    Drew will be a major league starter for someone next year. Brian Roberts will probably be watching games from home by the all-star break. The Yankees need to be as deep as possible on the infield so getting Drew would be good. Or Diaz. I don’t care which. In any other situation I would not be advocating signing Drew, but the fact that Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts are our #1 3B and 2B right now is awful.
    _____________________

    The problem with the above is that it is based on pure speculation. You don’t know Roberts will be watching from home by the All-Star break. You don’t know that Diaz is a major league capable ballplayer. You don’t know that Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts are going to be awful.

    The Yankees management and player personnel pros know exactly what they have and don’t have and they know far more than you or any of us here know. They have spent almost a half billion dollars and feel they are going to field a competitive team that can contend for a world series title. They have a plan and I am sure a backup one should Roberts or anyone for that matter get hurt. Sizemore and others. Healthy players go down all the time; you can’t predict it.

    16 reasons to reject Drew? I only need 1 why they should sign him. He’s better than what they have.

    I’m dropping the subject though…..one condition….no complaining about the infield this year when it’s costing them ball games ok?

    Really pulling for Sizemore….he’s a good dude or at least he used to be. He used to could hit before the injuries so I’m hopeful he will find that form and make the club

    All we have to do is look at recent history with Roberts and Kelly Johnson to know they suck. These aren’t good players that just had down years last year. They are non-starters being put into starter roles.

    There is not a lot of upside with the current infield.

    People said the same thing about mine and others criticisms of the team last year too…..

  16. Jerkface February 20th, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    This isnt even about fielding a team of allstars. How about a team of slightly above league average players, please. Kelly Johnson is a platoon 2Bman that has 1 good skill (some pop) and Brian Roberts has not been a full time player for 4 years.

    You place far too much credence in past performance. You cannot predict the future. I believe if healthy, pro athletes can often rise to the occasion and outperform expectations. Stats can’t measure heart and desire. If they don’t, Cashman et all will deal with it, I am quite sure they have thought this through and have more than one contingency plans.

    In an ideal world…..Roberts stays healthy and Johnson and Sizemore can platoon at 3B and nobody gets hurt.

    I actually think Roberts will be ok if he can play…..it’s just that it’s highly unlikely he even plays 100 games IMO

    He hit .246 .310 .359 .669 the past 4 years. We’re putting a low bar on OK here.

    I am amazed by how many former Yankees (or Yankee farm hands) are on the Royals:

    Cory Wade
    Brandon Laird
    Jimmy Paredes
    Justin Maxwell
    Melky Mesa

    anyway – I mention this because what they lack is a back up catcher for Sally Perez. Yankees should deal one of theirs (Cervelli) to the Royals for some of their infield depth (Danny Valencia)

    He’s been hurt or had a concussion most all of that time though……the hypothetical “if he can play ” though and actually be healthy is so unlikely that it’s almost not even worth considering

    My guess is that Aramis Ramirez will be a Yankee at some point this season.

    He is 4 years out from any kind of good play and is 36. Even if healthy he isn’t a good bet to be any good. He wasn’t good in his ’3 months of health’ last year either.

  38. blake February 20th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    Most of the opposition to Drew is either “he costs too much” or “we can find somebody better”

    The question I keep asking that nobody seems to answer is : who are they getting at a better value than Drew on a 2 year deal?

  39. pete2 February 20th, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    The bullpen is probably as much a concern as the IF. However, we seem to have an expectation that Girardi and Larry can build a pen out of silly putty. However, their succcess in this area is partly due to having Mariano for so many years (and Soriano as his backup), with Robertson as setup up guy.

    No Mo or Soriano in 2014, and Robertson is being used in a position he has not really had success at. Who is the set up guy?. Whats the backup plan in case Robertson goes down?. Maybe these things work themselves out, but maybe they don’t get worked out for awhile and costs some close games in April and beyond. A poor pen can also kill your starters since Girardi will be hesitant to pull them early and leave them in too long, which can kill them in the 2nd half.

    Really would have been nice to have signed a Balfour or Rodney, not that they don’t have some warts. Might even have made as much sense as Drew.

    I guess its nice to just focus on the positives in ST, and everyone looks forward to seeing new guys like Tanaka and this incredibly slimmed down CC imposter, not to mention Ellsbury, Beltran and McCann. At the end of the day though, when the rose tinted glasses come off in April after 7 games with the Red Sox and 4 games with the Rays, I am pretty sure this board will be full of talk about the pen and IF.

  40. Pat M. February 20th, 2014 at 8:04 pm

    I think many here view the current situation in the Bronx with great frustration as it appears that the roster is being patched together with Bazooka gum, Elmers Glue mixed with some overcooked pasta. This direction was set forth two-three winters ago and now this is what we have. All the non key youthful signings, the decision not to move assets for young talent has led us to this…..Stephen Drew is a fine shortstop but he’s not the answer he’ll just another piece rigatoni tossed against the wall. Expensive piece of macaroni that is….. One year deal might work but come July they’ll be no bank left for what ever they’ll need….

    More precisely I would say I see the risk(s).

    Maybe they will not materialize ?

    That is the optimistic view just not the probable one.

    We are in Transition. We are evolving not revolutionizing.

    Evolution takes time.

    I, like you, would love to see Jeter and others go out w a ring.

    It’s a start

  46. blake February 20th, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    I’m actually not that worried about the bullpen….it’s a concern but it’s something in think they can fix in season . Girardi and Cash both have a knack for bullpens……not having Mo will make it more difficult for sure but I think they have enough big arms in the system that they can figure it out…..and if not there are always relievers available in July

  47. Jerkface February 20th, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    One year deal might work but come July they’ll be no bank left for what ever they’ll need….

    If there is no bank then thats HAL spitting in Jeter and the fans face. The Yankees have plenty of bank. They could have a 230 million payroll and pay less overall than they did last year with the luxury tax included thanks to the new limit. Every team got an extra 25 million in their pockets this year too and for each year going forward thanks to the new TV deal. The Yankees TV deal increases each year as well.

    Drew should not impact any trade deadline payroll, because they are at 195 right now and the Yankees can hold much more than that.

    Nah, Miguel just does this:

    “Miguel Cabrera is a damn good baseball player and an equally heavy drinker. The night before a one-game playoff with the Twins, the Tigers slugger got hammered with a few players from the Chicago White Sox.

    Once he finally made it home, his wife questioned Cabrera about his whereabouts, leading a domestic disturbance that led to scratches and Cabrera’s face and left his wife with a busted lip. Cabrera reportedly had a blood alcohol level of .26 that night, more than three times the legal limit. In 2011 Cabrera was arrested for DUI and was reportedly so intoxicated that he took a swig of scotch while being questioned by the arresting officer.”

    “I actually think Roberts will be ok if he can play

    “He hit .246 .310 .359 .669 the past 4 years. We’re putting a low bar on OK here.”

    That is not even a full season worth of AB’s. The last two years that he played a full season (08-09)

    This what he did. .290.367.451 .817 I also think he will be ok if he can stay on the field. There is a lot of injury risk with the infield .. but “if” they can stay healthy I think they will be plenty good enough.

    Face…The check writing is a streaky thing as we’ve seen…I think that they’ll set sail with what they have and make a course correction in July. Then again, maybe Boras makes them an offer they can’t refuse. But that’ll leave some sizeable bench contracts

    Playing more doesn’t instantly mean good play. Again, 4 years removed from any good season. 36 years old. He wasnt good in his 3 months of continuous play last year. Remember that Vernon Wells was only a few years removed from some decent seasons, but its about how he looks. Roberts hasnt look good for 4 years and just being clear of concussion symptoms doesn’t mean he gets all his skills back.

    The health of Brian Roberts is why I’m a) hoping the team signs Diaz, b) really looking forward to seeing what Jose Pirela can do with both the bat and glove.

  72. Chip February 20th, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    Brian Roberts wasn’t a bad signing though.

    Infante got too big a contract
    it was still early in the offseason and so Drew likely wouldn’t have come on board to play a position other than SS
    So Roberts at $2 mil made sense

    certainly more sense than trading for Brandon Phillips.

    There are still a lot of ways things can go…as I said yesterday, I think if Diaz signs elsewhere they will step up for Drew. I also think that an Ichiro for Keppinger trade makes a lot of sense for both teams and could probably happen towards the end of spring training.

    Brosius had a .759 ops as a Yankee. Johnson hasn’t matched that since 2010. I don’t think it’s any sort of lock that Johnson will be as good as brosius offensively and certainly not defensively

    that an Ichiro for Keppinger trade makes a lot of sense for both teams and could probably happen towards the end of spring training.

    That is not even a full season worth of AB’s. The last two years that he played a full season (08-09)

    This what he did. .290.367.451 .817 I also think he will be ok if he can stay on the field. There is a lot of injury risk with the infield .. but “if” they can stay healthy I think they will be plenty good enough.
    ===========================

    I don’t think all players can come back fully after a real serious concussion like he had. If the brain has residual damage, eye to hand coordination is not the same or as good. Would like to be wrong, but you look at guys like Freel, Morneau, etc.

    Oh the continued fall out for the Phillies

    “This story is of particular note given the fact that agents who are advising draft prospects are unhappy and could withhold information from the Phillies as the draft approaches. In a followup tweet to his story, Fitt quotes on agent who told him, “As of today, Phillies are out. Phillies are not getting into any more of our households. We’re shutting down all communications.” He also tweets that multiple agents have said there will be repercussions for the Phillies.

    Scout.com’s Kiley McDaniel and ESPN’s Keith Law have heard the same from agents in conversations today (Twitter links). Law goes on to speculate (via Twitter) that the Phillies may not receive information about the signability of some prospects, as well as their questionnaire responses and psych exam results.”

    Nate (Michigan): Rafael De Paula from the Yankess was great the first half of last year. Was his drop off at the end enough to keep him off this list and the Yankees top 10?
