The 2010 season could possibly be over for Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore after news broke Sunday on the extent of his knee injury.

Grady originally injured the knee on a hard slide into second base on May 16 in a 5-1 win against Baltimore and it is now believed that he will miss another 6-8 weeks, at best, depending on the extent of his injuries (which will be discovered after a knee arthroscopy).

Sizemore is scheduled to have the arthroscopy later this week in Colorado with Dr. Richard Steadman.

On the diamond, Sizemore’s teammates have been struggling throughout the month of May posting a 9-17 record and losing series’ to the Jays, Rays, Royals, Reds, and WhiteSox.

One of the bright spots for the tribe takes the hill tomorrow in New York as 26 year old Mitch Talbot faces off against Andy Pettitte. Talbot is 6-3 on the year with a 3.73 ERA in 60.1 innings pitched. Mitch is leading all Indians pitchers in wins and has also allowed the least amount of hits among the Indians starting rotation.

Trevor Crowe is expected to continue to take the center field position in the lineup tomorrow; but it is also expected that Michael Brantley will see the field sometime in the coming weeks as Cleveland tries to fill the void left by Sizemore.

The Indians have one more week left on this road trip before a 10 game home stand against the Red Sox, Nationals, and Mets.

Manager, Manny Acta will have to sure up the rotation and solidify a workable lineup if he hopes to carry Cleveland to a manageable record by the end of June.
