The long-rumored Keith Foulke signing is passing a hurdle today – Foulke is in Cleveland to take his physical. It appears to be a one-year deal with a mutual option for ’08. Foulke will join a cast of shaky veteran additions in the Tribe pen.
Foulke, 34, was hurt mostly by the longball in the last couple of seasons. Jacobs Field should help in that it suppresses HRs by about 15%.
UPDATE: The News-Herald says Foulke’s 2007 salary would be $3-4MM.
