Jordan Norberto – Previewed Here – left handed reliever who will spend most of year rehabbing from TJ surgery but would be under team control for three seasons.
Rafael Perez – Previewed Here – Left-handed reliever and former Tribe set-up man. Perez got through 2013 healthy and could be close to returning to his previous form.
Ruggedly Handsome List Memebers:
Justin Morneau – Previewed Here - good defense, ability to hit right handed pitching, cleanup hitter, and will free front office to shop Drew Stubbs or Asdrubal Cabrera or both.
Roy Halladay – Previewed Here – Add value and character to Indians and if he rebounds from last seasons shoulder issues he could be a big boost to the rotation.
Rafael Furcal – Previewed Here – Could allow Indians to trade Asdrubal Cabrera while having a stop gap 1-year shortstop while Francisco Lindor finishes his development in the minors.
Tim Hudson – Previewed Here – Despite his age and ugly ankle injury last season the wily vet has been consistent his whole career. He’d be a nice addition to soften the blow of losing Ubaldo Jimenez and/or Scott Kazmir.
Dan Haren – Previewed Here – Although he has fallen off the the last two years he is still a very good back of the rotation pitcher who could step up in 2014 and regain his earlier form.
Bartolo Colon - Previewed Here – The Tribe’s former ace is coming off a dominant season. However at 40-years-old with a PED history the market for Colon is rather cool. Is this an opportunity for the Indians to bring back Colon on a one-year deal?
Francisco Rodriguez – Previewed Here – Could K-Rod be an option at closer in 2014 for the Indians? Poissibly. If Rodriguez is looking to get back into a closer role, Cleveland might be the location for that to happen.
