The Indians Tribe Has A New Member

Didn't catch this one. Brian Horwitz was picked in December by the Cleveland Indians in the Rule 5 draft. Ron Kaplan has more on this story at Kaplan's Korner.

The Indians now have 4 MOTs in their farm system. Horwitz joins Eric Berger, Jason Kipnis, and Jason Knapp.

The Indians have 2 of the best outfielders in all of baseball in Grady Sizemore and Shin-Soo Choo, but Choo may have to serve 2 years in South Korea's military in the near future.

If Matt LaPorta is moved permanently to 1st base, Horwitz could see some playing time in left field as a 4th or 5th outfielder.
