Signed OF Grady Sizemore, SS Jhonny Peralta, 3B Corey Smith, LHRP Cliff Bartosh, LHSP Brian Tallet, and RHRP Rafael Betancourt to one-year major-league contracts (amounts undisclosed)
Good and Bad News on the Injury Front
CL Bob Wickman threw off the mound today, and had no ill effect.
LHRP Carl Sadler came down with the dreaded "shoulder soreness"
RHRP Bob Howry and RHRP Mark Wohlers are still not completely healthy. According to the Akron Beacon-Journal, Wohlers may be out for the entire season.
Probably the best news is that OF Ryan Ludwick has made great strides in his recovery from knee surgery last offseason. He isn't completely recovered yet, but he's made a lot of progress in the past couple weeks.
