CLEVELAND (AP) — Grady Sizemore will be out of the Cleveland Indians’ lineup four to six weeks after having abdominal surgery.

The three-time All-Star outfielder had the procedure to repair a hernia problem performed Thursday in Philadelphia by Dr. William Meyers. Sizemore went on the disabled list Monday after complaining of soreness in his right knee while running out a double in a game in Baltimore on Sunday.

It is the latest problem for Sizemore, who had an operation on his left elbow two years ago, missed much of last season with a left knee injury that required microfracture surgery, and was on the disabled list in May with a bruised right knee.

Indians trainer Lonnie Soloff said Sizemore sustained the hernia on the same headfirst slide in May in which he hurt the right knee, but continued to play.
