Shea Hillenbrand

In today's ABJ, Terry Pluto reports the Tribe asked about Hillenbrand but were told "the Blue Jays plan to keep him, at least for now."  Terry says "I'm not sure how the Indians see it, but I view Hillenbrand as a major upgrade at first over Ben Broussard. He supplies depth at third base if something happens to Aaron Boone. He's the kind of hitter they've been lacking."  I disagree completely.

Other notes:

  • The Tribe made an offer for Eric Byrnes as a backup.
  • They think Jason Johnson was a bargain and believe they can "take a veteran who has had some problems and put him in a stable situation with some solid coaching to bring out his best."
  • Rhodes should be back, and Miller is pitching well in Puerto Rico.
