Red Sox | Grady Sizemore the starting CF

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Friday, March 28, that OF Grady Sizemore will open the season as the team's starting center fielder after he passed all the physical tests that the team gave him this spring. Sizemore hit .333 with a home run in camp. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. will start the season at Triple-A Pawtucket after hitting .158 with a team-high 17 strikeouts this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore's comeback story has been one of the best feel-good stories of spring training. Knee and other injuries derailed a once promising career, but he's back, and he has a starting gig. Whether his body can hold up over the course of the season is another question, but for now, he should be owned in all leagues, at least as outfield depth.
