Phillies purchase outfielder Grady Sizemore’s contract

PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Phillies purchased outfielder Grady Sizemore’s contract from Triple-A and sent pitcher David Buchanan to Lehigh Valley.

Sizemore, who started the season as the Red Sox center fielder, will join the team for a three-game series against Washington before the All-Star break. Buchanan was the winning pitcher in a 9-1 victory at Milwaukee yesterday. The move means he can start during the break and return to the Phillies when they need a fifth starter later this month.

Cliff Lee was moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Sizemore on the 40-man roster. Lee is expecting to return for a weekend series at Atlanta after the break.

Sizemore was a three-time All-Star for Cleveland from 2006-08. He was released by the Red Sox on June 18 after hitting just .216 with two home runs and 15 RBI in 52 games.
