A three-time All-Star, the 31-year-old has played eight major league seasons, all with Cleveland. He hit .269 with 139 homers and 458 RBIs.

Sizemore was an AL All-Star in each of his last three full seasons (2006-08) and hit .279 during that stretch. He has been hampered by injuries over the last five years, missing the past two seasons following operations on his right knee and back. Before 2009, he had never been on the disabled list.

Sizemore's base salary is guaranteed under Wednesday's deal, and he can make $4 million in performance bonuses and $1.25 million in roster bonuses.

Right-hander Brayan Villarreal was designated for assignment to open a spot on the 40-man roster.
