Indians, Pavano reach one-year deal
Injury-plagued right-hander looking to re-establish career
By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com
CLEVELAND -- Looking to bolster their starting rotation, the Indians are taking a chance on Carl Pavano.
Pavano and the Indians have agreed to a one-year Major League deal that was to be announced Tuesday afternoon. The deal does not include an option. Financial terms were not immediately available.
Pavano, who turns 33 on Thursday, is coming off a disappointing, injury-plagued four-year stint with the Yankees. With New York in 2008, he appeared in seven games and was 4-2 with a 5.77 ERA in 34 1/3 innings.
Over the course of his four-year, $40 million deal with the Yanks, Pavano appeared in just 26 games. He threw 145 2/3 innings over a four-year span. He missed all of 2006 because of injury. He broke in with the Montreal Expos in 1998.
The Indians designated first baseman Mike Aubrey for assignment to make room for Pavano on the 40-man roster.

Seems to me the Indians are making some very good moves this offseason.
