An Urbina Sighting
Barely a week after finding that Wickman is done for most of (if not all) the entire season, the Indians have invited closer-for-sale Ugueth Urbina to talk about a contract. UU has been demanding a multi-year contract, which the Indians, given their recent history, will not give out. But given the choice bewteen the American League and a year in Japan, I think he’d rather stay in the States. Reportedly the Indians’ offer is around 2.5M to 3.0M for one year. Whether that’s good enough for Urbina remains to be seen.
