Indians News: Foulke, Mulder, Westbrook

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer checks in with various Tribe updates.

Keith Foulke still has to take his physical; the Indians probably won't reach an agreement until next week.  Foulke would team with Joe Borowski to take the eighth and ninth innings, which neither pitching three days in a row.

The Indians are waiting to hear back from Mark Mulder's agent on their reported two-year offer.  Should Mulder be signed and ready in May or June, it might allow for a trade.  Paul Byrd, Cliff Lee, or Jake Westbrook could be dealt to clear space.

There's also a chance the Indians sign Westbrook to an extension; they may speak on the topic before the season starts.  Westbrook will be a 30 year-old with probably four consecutive seasons of 210 innings; that should command $11-12MM and four or five years on the open market.
