Analysis: Sizemore, who underwent back surgery last month, will not be eligible to come off the DL until June 3. He has been in Cleveland doing his rehab. General manager Chris Antonetti said the three-time All-Star has been working on his stability and mobility and will resume baseball activities "in a couple weeks." Sizemore re-signed with the Indians as a free agent this winter. He injured his back while fielding ground balls early in spring training.

Analysis: Sizemore injured his back a few weeks ago while working his way back from knee surgery. Trainer Lonnie Soloff says there is no timetable on his return.

Sizemore played in just 71 games last season and went on the disabled list three times.
