Outfielder Grady Sizemore was called up by the Philadelphia Phillies a few weeks after he signed a minor league contract.

Sizemore, who was released in June by the Boston Red Sox, was added to the major league roster, CSNPhilly.com reported Thursday night.

In 10 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Sizemore batted .289 with one home run.

Coming back from two injury-filled seasons, the 31-year-old Sizemore hit .216 with two homers in 52 games this year before he was let go by the Boston Red Sox.

To clear room on the roster, left-hander Cliff Lee went from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Sizemore began his career with Cleveland in 2004 and had five productive seasons with the Indians before injuries started to take their toll.
