Grady Sizemore Strains Back, Likely to Start Season on DL

Oh, dear.



The particulars.

The good news? It's not a knee injury. The bad news? The knee rehab is going to be placed on hold while Grady rehabs from the back injury. I'm usually an optimistic sort, but this doesn't sound good at all:

"The challenge," Soloff said, "is that there's so many other compounding factors. The knee rehab had to be slowed down, if you would, so then any progress with that component has to be re-engaged after his back responds."

Opening Day is six weeks away, and the Indians are already forecasting that Grady will miss it.
