Fultz to be DFAd; Lee the fifth starter

Link

The Indians informed Fultz on Monday morning that he will not be a member of their club this year, despite the fact that they exercised his $1.5 million option for 2008. And in a more anticipated move, the Tribe has also named the left-handed Lee its fifth starter. Aaron Laffey and Jeremy Sowers have been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.

Recently acquired Craig Breslow will get the first opportunity to replace Fultz as the second left-hander in the bullpen. The Fultz DFA will open up a spot for Jorge Julio or Scott Elarton if the Indians choose either for the last spot in the bullpen.
