INF Scott Sizemore had his contract purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, and he will be available Wednesday, when the Yankees host the Cubs in a day-night doubleheader. Sizemore, whom the Yankees signed as a minor league free agent in January, is expected to serve as a backup at multiple infield positions. He is a career .238 hitter in 160 big league games but has made just two appearances in the majors since 2011 because of two knee injuries. He was hitting .344 in 10 games at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
