    Dellucci to Indians...

    Per Ken Rosenthal:

    Dellucci agrees to 3-year, $11.5M deal

    The Indians have found a new left fielder, reaching agreement with free agent David Dellucci on a three-year, $11.5 million contract, FOXSports.com has learned.

    The deal is contingent on Dellucci passing a physical. The examination is expected to take place Thursday in Cleveland.

    The signing of Dellucci, a left-handed hitter, will enable the Indians to play Shin-Soo Choo in right field and move Casey Blake to first base. Jason Michaels, a right-handed hitter, likely will play left against certain left-handed pitchers.

    Dellucci, 33, spent last season as a part-time player after the Rangers traded him to the Phillies on April 1. He performed well in his limited role, however, hitting 13 homers and producing an .899 on-base/slugging percentage in 264 at-bats.

    Rangers owner Tom Hicks cited the absence of Dellucci when bemoaned his team's lack of toughness in a radio interview late in the season, saying, "I think we missed David Dellucci. I think that leadership in the clubhouse part is really important, and we didn't have that after he left."

    Dellucci, a 10-year veteran, has a career .348 on-base percentage.

    "You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."

    What will the Indians do with Martinez? Could the Indians be interested in Ross, Ray Olmedo, Elizardo Ramirez, and Tyler Pelland for Jake Westbrook if they move Martinez?

    From a need and value/dollar, this may be the best signing of the off-season so far.

    Wow..for that dollar amount Im seroiusly pissed WK didnt get him..what a price for a very very good and underrated player.

    I would have loved to have taken him to start in RF full time and let Freel spell Griff for injuries and Dunn/Delluci vs LHP.

    So far I have not been too upset with the FO taking a pass on those who have been signed. No one has really been worth the money they are receiving. That is until this signing. Dellucci would have been a solid solid player for this team at this price.

    I graduated from college in may, I got a good job and have some disposable income, and I was considering season tickets. But now, no way. I'm not spending my money on this team if Chad Moeller and Mike Stanton are considered the big signings. I'll just take a nice vacation or something.

    That was a bargain for a stud. Like said before I think that may have been the signing of the off season. Congrats to the Northerners of Ohio on that pick-up.

    My thoughts exactly. I would gladly take Trot Nixon also. If the Reds can land Nixon for a similar contract as Dellucci's, I'd be all for it. Dellucci's a nice player, but if Nixon stays healthy, i'd wager to bet he'll outperform Dellucci next year, especially if he plays in GABP.

    Dellucci was a bad fit for the Reds

    The Reds have 2 players who are best in LF ( or DH ) - Dunn and Griffey.
    Both bat left handed.

    Delluci is a left handed hitting outfielder who has a weak arm and poor range -meaning he is best in left.

    ergo Delluci was a bad fit for the Reds this year
