The comeback tour for Grady Sizemore is over.

An industry source told Alex Speier of WEEI.com that the Red Sox designated the outfielder for assignment to clear a roster spot for third baseman Garin Cecchini. After a strong spring training, Sizemore struggled to find consistency at the plate, hitting .216/.288/.324 with two home runs, 15 RBIs, 10 doubles, two triples and five stolen bases in 185 at-bats over 52 games.

Cecchini makes his second trip to the majors this season. He made his major league debut on June 1, going 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI. So far this season in Pawtucket, Cecchini has hit .263/.344/.329 with two homers, 24 RBIs, eight doubles and eight stolen bases.
