08:11 AM ET 08.10 | Penciled optimistically in for a four- to six-week absence after July 21 surgery, Grady Sizemore will need more time. Now, it appears Sizemore will likely remain sidelined until at least early September. Sizemore underwent a procedure to correct a sports hernia after he was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion in July. The original timeframe plotted that Sizemore would suit up by Sept. 1, at the latest. Indians manager Manny Acta said Tuesday, however, that an August return was never a realistic expectation. "Not the end of this month, no," Acta said. "We never anticipated him being able to come back by the end of this month."

Reinjures his right knee, then gets a sports hernia? Ya August wasnt a realistic expectation, it takes more than a month 2 recover from a hernia.

Maybe. But he's still under 30

What a shame.

Typical recovery time from a sports hernia surgery is 4-6 weeks.

Too bad. I was enjoying the Indian (and Pirate) resurgence. Good for baseball. Sizemore would have helped.

As a Tribe fan all I can say is...dammit.

Really, at only the age of 29? Okay...

Probably. The guy just can't stay healthy. If it's not his knee, it's his elbow, if it's not his elbow, it's his other knee, if it's not his other knee, it's a sports hernia. Sadly, the guy is walking DL fodder these days.

One thing I'll say with a fair amount of certainty, unless the Indians somehow eek their way into the playoffs, September 28th will be the last day for Grady in an Indians uniform. After three straight disappointing years, I just don't see them picking up his $8.5M option.

Sorry, $9m option.

Wow, a Tribe thread!!

Just let Grady get right for October. Only 3 out, long way to go. Walk off HBP in the 14th last night, gotta love it.

I love Grady and if you would have told me three years ago I wouldn't mind him leaving I would have punched myself in the face. But as many of you mentioned he does have the injury bug. AND THE STRIKEOUTS DRIVE ME CRAZY! I wish him well though. Ever since he covered his wee-wee with a coffee cup he hasn't been right.

Right on Slinky. As much as I hate to agree with ya though.

My favorite Tribe players are Omar and Thome.

Sizemore had all of the tools to be a superstar. Sadly, the multitude and timing of the injuries have diminished his promise. Hopefully he can get right and become a solid player if not for the Indians than someone else.

Do you mean you hate to agree with me that Sizemore is probably gone, or you just hate to agree with me in general?

Ha!

I don't see how you could be a Tribe fan and not love Oh-my Omar.

I really liked Sizemore and felt like he was headed for greatness. I also liked Martinez quite a bit - I have to love any player who cries when traded away from Cleveland because most are counting down the minutes until they can leave.

I'm growing rather fond of Asdrubal. I also like how Kipnis has just hit the ground running, plus, he just looks like a bad **** - like he should be mugging you instead of jacking homers.

Pirates were an abberation. They have regained their form. In other words, they suck again.
