Brett Myers Signs With Cleveland Indians

Brett Myers with the Chicago White Sox in 2011

According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com and MLB Network the Cleveland Indians and free agent pitcher Brett Myers have agreed to terms on a contract.

Brett Myers entered free agency as potentially being one of the top pitchers off the market fast mostly due the fact that he has experience being a bullpen pitcher and a starter pitcher. During free agency Brett Myers had a lot of teams that had a lot of interest in bringing him. Teams like the San Diego Padres, Minnesota Twins and the Baltimore Orioles all had interest but fell due to the amount of money that Brett Myers was asking for.

The Cleveland Indians came as a surprise to most of us as the suitor for Brett Myers. The Indians had entered the off season being linked to be focusing in more on their hitting less then their pitching. With the addition to Brett Myers it would seem very questionable where the the Indians will be placing him. It could be a option to place him in the bullpen to just build depth in the bullpen that lost Tony Sipp who was a top bullpen pitcher for the team last season before being dealed to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the trade involving the Indians and Reds.

Brett Myers will join Nick Swisher as one of the top talents that the Cleveland Indians have signed this current off season. The team will look to make a serious push for the AL Central division title in 2013.
