Twitter is abuzz with rumors that the Indians have signed pitcher Brett Myers. The Indians have yet to confirm the signing which is likely pending a physical if it has actually occurred. Matt Loede from 92.3 the Fan in Cleveland was the first to post it. If it is true, Brett Meyers gives the Indians a 32-year-old pitcher with starting experience who most recently came out of the bullpen for the White Sox. He played in 35 games for the White Sox with a 3.12 ERA. He had 21 strikeouts and nine walks. Myers is also famous (or infamous) for his verbal altercation with a Philadelphia reporter that resulted in him saying, “Boom. Outta here.” (39 seconds in below video.)
