BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox took a shot on Grady Sizemore this season, but it seems as though the team is willing to cut bait.

Sizemore was designated for assignment on Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple reports. The move made room on the roster for Garin Cecchini.

The Red Sox now have 10 days to either place Sizemore on waivers or trade him. Sizemore could accept a minor league assignment if he wants to hang on with the Boston organization. If Sizemore does not accept a minor league assignment and the team has no suitors in a trade, he will be released from the roster entirely.

Sizemore, still just 31 years old, hit .216 with two homers, 15 RBIs and a .612 OPS in 52 games (205 plate appearances) this season.

It’s Sizemore’s first season playing baseball since 2011, as a series of injuries and corresponding surgeries halted the career of the once-perennial All-Star.
