Now we all know, well most of us do, that the Minnesota Twins are currently gunning for starting pitching to improve their rotation.

Yeah this team has a couple spots on this roster where they could improve, but pitching is more than likely their top priority. Of course they’re going to be looking to add to their outfield because let’s be honest, you can always add depth to that group.

Well according to Darren Wolfson on Twitter, the Minnesota Twins at one time were interested in veteran outfielder Grady Sizemore. Sizemore hasn’t played in two seasons as his production has dropped since his 2010 season.

Grady underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee in September of 2012 and hasn’t been back since. Before that surgery, Sizemore has had some different procedures done on his back.

Sizemore has spent his entire eight year career with the Cleveland Indians. He was definitely a cornerstone for that outfield.

In his eight year career, Sizemore has 139 career home runs with 458 RBI’s and a batting line of .224/.285/.22.

With Minnesota passing up on him, he could still be an option for the Philadelphia Phillies.
