    Brett Myers is healthy after missing four months with an elbow injury, but the Indians decided they don’t want him around for September and released the veteran right-hander. Myers signed a one-year, $7 million deal with the Indians and moved back into the rotation after spending last season as a reliever. It went horribly, as…

    Brett Myers Getty

    There are few if any consensuses in baseball, but there’s a pretty strong near-consensus that criticizing anything related to Mariano Rivera is bad form. People just don’t want to hear that especially now, as he makes his final victory lap before he retires. Someone didn’t tell that to Brett Myers who Cleveland.com points out tweeted this the…

    Brett Myers Getty

    Cleveland signed Brett Myers as a starter this offseason after the right-hander spent last season as a full-time reliever and now he might be moving back to the bullpen. Whenever he gets healthy, that is. Myers is on the disabled list with an elbow injury and recently had to put his minor-league rehab assignment on…

    Brett Myers was placed on the disabled list yesterday with what the Indians called a forearm injury, but today the team announced that the injury is more specifically a strained elbow ligament.

    As first reported by beat reporter Nick Camino of Cleveland’s WTAM 1100, the Indians have placed right-hander Brett Myers on the 15-day disabled list because of a right forearm injury.

    Brett Myers gave up two homers in five innings yesterday in a 3-2 loss to the Astros. He has now served up 10 long balls in 21 1/3 innings over his first four starts this season and currently holds a league-worst 8.02 ERA. While he has always been prone to the gopher ball, it appears…

    Mar 10, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Cleveland Indians

    Indians hurler Zach McAllister has impressed manager Terry Francona enough to win one of the rotation spots in the back of the rotation. Via MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian: Francona informed McAllister that he will be a member of Cleveland’s Opening Day rotation, most likely sliding into the fourth slot behind Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez and Brett…

    That’s the report from Buster Olney. And That’s two years in a row for Masterson. Another ten or twelve of those and we’ll be arguing about his Hall of Fame case one day. It’s a signal of some sort of tenure or continuity more than anything else, as Masterson is coming off a meh 2012.…

    brett myers getty

    Brett Myers and the Indians officially announced their one-year, $7 million deal today and it was also revealed that the team option for 2014 is worth $8 million. So if Myers pitches well and stays healthy he’ll get $15 million for two seasons, which would be the same contract that free agent starters like Joe…

    Jon Heyman reported yesterday that the Indians and Brett Myers had reached agreement on a one-year deal. This morning he reports the contract’s value: $7 million. As mentioned last night, the contract includes an option for 2014.

    The Indians traded for Trevor Bauer last month and signed Brett Myers to a one-year free agent deal earlier this evening. But their thirst for starting rotation candidates apparently remains strong. According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Indians “have had dialogue” with righty Shaun Marcum. It’s possible that the yet-to-be-finalized Myers contract will end…

    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe has an update on the market for free agent right-hander Brett Myers: There are so many positive views of Myers and what he can bring either as a starter (a former 200-inning guy) or reliever, yet he remains unsigned. “The feeling is he’s been asking for too much money,”…

  23. Twins interested in Joe Saunders and Brett Myers

    Joe Saunders Getty

    Minnesota came into the offseason needing to fill at least three and possibly four rotation spots, and the Twins’ early additions of Kevin Correia and Mike Pelfrey haven’t been very inspiring. They also inked Rich Harden to a minor-league deal today, but Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Twins are still searching for rotation…

  24. Kevin Correia has multi-year offers on the table

    Dec 6, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Maybe it’s the lack of sleep I’ve gotten this week, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman seems to be implying that free agent right-hander Kevin Correia is a pretty popular guy right now. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported earlier today that the Royals are considering Correia along with Brett Myers and Jair Jurrjens, but the Twins and…

    Francisco Liriano

    Seemingly uninterested in committing to a full rebuild after losing 95+ games each of the last two years, the Twins are more buyers than sellers at the moment. MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports that they’ve made offers to Francisco Liriano and Joe Saunders while waiting for the pitching market to further unfold. Liriano, of course, pitched…
