Indians Sign Takuya Tsuchida

The Indians have signed 18-year-old Japanese outfielder Takuya Tsuchida, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (Sulia link).

The speedy left-handed hitter's best positions are second base and center field, according to Hoynes. Tsuchida is expected to report to Spring Training with the team's minor leaguers and will likely begin 2013 in extended Spring Training. As Hoynes notes, general manager Chris Antonetti had roughly $700K of the team's $2.9MM international spending cap to work with prior to signing Tsuchida.

On the international front the Indians have already signed prospects Grofy Cruz, Francisco Mejia, Yoiber Marquina, and Naoki Hashimoto.
