MILWAUKEE -- Triple-A outfielder Grady Sizemore can opt out of his contract over the All-Star break if he is not in the Phillies' big-league plans.

Is he close to joining the Phillies?

"If he's playing like he is right now, that's what it looks like," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said when asked if he anticipated Sizemore joining the team at some point. "We'll see. We're considering it."

Sizemore entered Monday hitting .303 (10-for-33) with one home run, one RBI and a .772 OPS in seven games with the IronPigs.

"He's playing pretty good, moving pretty well," Amaro said. "We have some time to make the decision on him, but everything so far has been positive."

Triple-A right-hander Jason Marquis, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, has pitched well with the IronPigs. He can opt out of his contract on July 31.
