For those owners hoping Grady Sizemore would turn it around, they will have to wait longer after the struggling Indians outfielder was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee bone bruise. The move was made retroactive to May 17. Sizemore is batting .211 with a .217 on-base percentage and has yet to homer. He might need surgery and is out indefinitely. Shelley Duncan was called up to take Sizemore's roster spot. Trevor Crowe should get most of the time in centerfield. Crowe is worth a pickup in AL-only leagues.

Asdrubal Cabrera, also placed on the disabled list, will miss 8-10 weeks with a broken left forearm. Jason Donald will fill in for him at shortstop.

Josh Beckett was also placed on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain. Tim Wakefield will take his turn in the rotation.
