Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said OF Grady Sizemore (knee) will not be shifted to left field when he returns to game action, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. "Right now," Antonetti said, "the thought is center field is actually less demanding on his knees. He may have to cover more ground out there, but he doesn't have to decelerate as quickly as he goes into the wall. Left field and right field, you have to stop more quickly than you do in center." The team is being conservative with Sizemore, and there is still a chance that he could open the season on the disabled list. If he does start on the DL, it would open up a spot for candidates that include OFs Trevor Crowe, Shelley Duncan, Travis Buck, Chad Huffman and Jordan Brown.
