New York – After battling back from his second ACL tear in as many years, former Ram Scott Sizemore was called back up to the Big Show today.
The VCU baseball alum joins the New York Yankees, after opening the 2014 campaign in Scranton/Wilkes Barre.
In the Railriders' first 10 games the infielder batted .344, with five RBIs and four extra base hits for the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees.
Sizemore isn't a newcomer to the Majors, previously playing for the Detriot Tigers and most recently the Oakland Athletics. Over his three years in the MLB, the Virginia Beach, Va. native has played in 160 games and holds a lifetime .238 average with 120 hits and 70 RBIs.
Hindered with numerous injuries to the Bronx Bombers' infield Sizemore adds depth to both second and third base. Sizemore and his new teammates will take on the Chicago Cubs tomorrow in a day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium.
