    Sunday’s game was barely in the books when the Indians gave Dan Wheeler the old heave-ho this afternoon, designating the 34-year-old right-hander for assignment. Of course, the team did have some time to think about it down 12-1 to the Red Sox in the eighth and ninth innings today. Wheeler took over with the Indians…

    I mentioned earlier that I’m in an impossibly good mood today. The park has a lot to do with it. Great weather of course. Just woke up on the right side of the bed somehow. And when I’m in a good mood I like to walk around and take pictures of stuff. Yes, I realize…

    Even after giving up their top two pitching prospects for Ubaldo Jimenez, the Indians couldn’t maintain their hot start last year and lost their last four games to finish under .500 at 80-82. The offseason saw them shopping from the scrap heap, which isn’t unusual, but even as they were forced to pick from largely…

  5. Cubs and A’s interested in reliever Todd Coffey

    Todd Coffey

    I’ve been confused about why the Twins haven’t snatched up one of the many low-cost veteran relievers who’ve signed recently and of the remaining options Todd Coffey would seemingly be a good fit, but Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com in Minnesota reports that they aren’t even in the mix for him. According to Wolfson the Cubs…

  6. Dan Wheeler agrees to minor-league contract with Indians

    Boston Red Sox v Kansas City Royals

    As further proof of what a buyer’s market this offseason is for relief pitching, the Indians have signed Dan Wheeler to a minor-league contract. Wheeler is certainly far from a great reliever, but he’s been a solid, dependable setup man for the better part of a decade and yet couldn’t even secure a big-league contract…

    Boston Red Sox v Kansas City Royals

    Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports that free agent reliever Dan Wheeler will decline the Red Sox’s arbitration offer by tonight’s deadline. However, according to MacPherson the two sides will “maintain dialogue” while he’s on the open market.

    After losing out on several of their reported top bullpen targets the Red Sox “are discussing a possible deal” with Dan Wheeler, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe. Keeping the ball in the ballpark has been Wheeler’s weakness, with 28 homers allowed in 172 innings over the past three seasons, but he still…

    Tampa Bay declined 2011 options on Dan Wheeler at $4 million and Willy Aybar at $2.25 million, but Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times reports that the Rays may try to re-sign both players to lesser salaries. Aybar batted just .230/.309/.344 in 309 plate appearances while playing mostly designated hitter, so giving him a…
