We’ll keep track of today’s minor moves in this post…
- The Indians have inked a minors pact with lefty reliever Adam Wilk, who’ll receive an invite to spring training. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Wilk stands to make $560K if he makes the opening day roster, and can opt out of his contract if he doesn’t. The 30-year-old pitched 14 MLB innings last season with the Mets and Twins; he’s also played for the Tigers and Angels during his big-league career. Wilk averages just 88 MPH on his fastball, but boasts a five-pitch repertoire. He throws a four-seamer, sinker, slider, curve and change up; each makes up at least 10% of his pitch selection. For his career, the southpaw has a 7.36 ERA. Right-handed batters have hit .331/.380/.664 against him.
His career ERA is 7.84 not 4.87
It’s actually 7.36. But yeah not 4.87
This guy has a chance to be more than just a LOOGY by the end of the year. I saw him pitch live last year, and if I recall correctly, he has a heater, sinker, slider, curve and change-up. A nightmare for hitters.
Yes, a nightmare for hitters. Especially right handed ones. /sarcasm
He’s actually worse vs lefties than righties.

Yes, the article clearly states he has five pitches.
It clearly states his ERA, too
Five pitches…none of them any good. Nothing like a poor LOOGY, come in to face a lefty and promptly give up a hit to then be yanked for a righty.
Indians Front Office digging in the dumpster hoping to find Lightning in the bottle nothing wrong with that but this guy is not it LOL.
Neither was paying Logan $7 mil last year.
I think his face cut off in the photo sums it up nicely.
Nice going they changed the picture.
5 pitches, he’s a lefty without a 2 seam fastball? All that junk the throws, got to think that would be an easy one to throw in the mix
Dude is a stiff off the scrap pile his fast ball does not even hit 90 mph and his ERA is horrible there is no way this guy makes the team.
