Indians News and Notes 12/11

Look, Cols! It's a picture of Drew Pomeranz on an Indians site! (Note: Least photogenic delivery ever? I hated 90% of the photos of him.) - Doug Pensinger
  • In a deal that saw LGT Discussion Pieces traded for eachother, the Rockies traded Drew Pomeranz (and another minor leaguer) to Oakland for Brett Anderson. Because the A's are only paying $2M of Anderson's salary, I think this trade is a pretty big win for Oakland and not so good for Colorado. I would have been upset if Chris Antonetti had given up that much while only getting $2M in return with Anderson.
  • I'll let MLBRosterMoves tackle this one:
  • The Indians are of course willing to trade Asdrubal Cabrera.
  • According to Kevin Kleps, Masterson is not available. Still unable to get his full article that he linked to loaded, I will instead direct you to his twitter, which has a couple other interesting notes too: https://twitter.com/KevinKleps
  • RHP Tyler Cloyd, who the Indians DFA'd for Murphy, might return on a MiLB deal. I'd like this.
  • The Rakuten Golden Eagles are "still undecided about posting Masahiro Tanaka"
  • Might the Indians be after Justin Chamberlain? I hope not.
  • Might the Astros be after Grady Sizemore? I hope not.
    (although that would be better than him playing for NYY, BOS, DET, MIN or CWS)
  • Apparently the Rule 5/V draft is today, because this was tweeted yesterday:
