Some Indians tidbits courtesy of The Plain Dealer's Terry Pluto..
- The Indians are keeping an eye on Jermaine Dye, who recently turned down a $3.3MM offer from the Cubs before they moved on to Xavier Nady. Cleveland would like to add a right-handed bat, and Dye fits the job description. However, with a UZR/150 lower that -21.0 in each of the past four seasons, the 36-year-old is a defensive liability.
- Jonny Gomes is another righty slugger on the open market who could land with the Tribe. The 29-year-old is coming off of a banner year with the Reds, though he posted a -23.4 UZR/150 in the outfield. As we've heard before, the club is also talking to Russell Branyan.
- The Indians are expected to have the lowest payroll in the Central Division at about $65MM. It appears that the only club in the American League with a lower payroll will be the Oakland A's.
