    Austin Kearns?

    Indians Designate Austin Kearns For Assignment


    The Indians announced that they have designated outfielder Austin Kearns for assignment to create active roster space for Shin-Soo Choo, who has been activated from the disabled list. Choo had been on the DL since June 25th after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured thumb.

    Kearns signed a one-year, $1.3MM deal with the Indians last offseason and produced a .200/.302/.287 line with two homers in 174 plate appearances. He played both corner outfield positions for the Tribe, but saw his slash line drop significantly; he posted a .263/.351/.395 line for the Indians and Yankees in 2010.

    We already have a guy on the roster that strikes out a bunch, but at least he is fast.

    he can be had for a prorated league minimum, I would do it just to see if they can fix his swing, he still has a canon of an arm. At this point what does it hurt

    The problem with bringing him now is that you have to make room on the 40-man. Maybe that's not a big problem. Now a Spring Training invite would not be a bad idea.

    I'm tired of retreads. I'm tired of trying to fix retreads. See Corey Patterson, Willy Tavares, Jonny Gomes, Jeremy Hermida................

    For once can this ownership go out and trade for a legit solution to a problem instead of hoping to catch lightning in a bottle?
