Indians Sign J.C. Romero

9:32pm: Romero can opt out of his contract if he is not called up the big leagues by August 15th according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).

4:07pm: The Indians have signed left-hander J.C. Romero to a minor league deal, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer (via Twitter).  The veteran has been assigned to Triple-A Columbus.

Romero, 36, opted out of his deal with the Orioles and elected free agency last month.  The reliever initially hooked on with the Cardinals back in December but was cut loose just six weeks into the season.  Romero owns a career 4.15 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9.

That happens when you drink too much on Saturday night and read about J.C. Romero on Sunday morning.

if the indians were smart, and could get the cubs to sign off on a reasonable trade for ryan dempster, their rotation would dramatically improve.

this stuff is infuriating, so spending the past 3 years drafting mostly pen friendly pitchers were mainly minor league depth. Other teams worry about their job security for those move rather than being aggressive on the trade market.
