Foulke Close With Indians

Fantasy leaguers, take note – reliever Keith Foulke is close to signing a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2008 with the Indians.  It’s still not too late for another team to jump in with a better offer, however.

Foulke would join Joe Borowski as candidates for save opportunities.  Foulke, a 34 year-old changeup artist, posted an excellent 5.1 K/BB in 2006.  He would join free agent additions Borowski, Roberto Hernandez, and Aaron Fultz in a revamped Cleveland bullpen.  Revamped and more expensive, but is it actually better?  That’s an open question.  All four of the new relievers are shaky bets; I guess Mark Shapiro is going for safety in numbers.
