With the Indians signing of fifth rounder RHP Zach Putnam yesterday, I thought I would take the time to provide some thoughts on him. I was able to get into contact with an amateur scout for an AL club this morning and this is what he had to say about him:

Man, it is Christmas in August. Per a report in the Plain Dealer, it appears that 2nd rounder Trey Haley will also sign tomorrow.

Wow, Indians have signed Bryce Stowell, T.J. House and now Zach Putnam. I guess they really did use some of that Byrd savings to sign these guys. I am not sure I understand why they would need to do that, but alas they have signed three top end prospects.
Also, C Wyatt Toregas went on the disbaled list with elbow inflammation and C Armando Camacaro was activated.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Per a report at Rivals.com, 16th round pick pitcher T.J. House has signed with the Indians. He is enroute to Cleveland to take a physical, and once he checks out he is supposed to officially sign on Friday. He reportedly will sign for $1 million. This is a big signing by the Indians, and with all these high profile signings the last few days with Fedroff, Stowell and a few others rumored to be close...

More details on this on Thursday, but I'll be doing the first radio show this Thursday 8/14 from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST. These are just test shows still, and I have nil radio experience, so please keep that in mind when listening for the first several episodes. The hope here is this provides yet another way for people to get some prospect information, and more importantly offers people a place to...

Real quick....RHP Paul Byrd has been traded to the Boston Red Sox for a player to be named later or cash. The player to be named must be agreed upon on or before January 15, 2009.
Also, I have seen an unconfirmed report that the Indians have signed 22nd round pick UC Irvine's RHP pitcher Bryce Stowell to $725K bonus. Still awaiting confirmation on that, but if true, that is very good news.

Weglarz Already Golden In Eyes Of Family
At 6'3" 250-pounds, outfielder Nick Weglarz is a fearsome presence at the plate for any opposing pitcher. Just 20 years of age, the scary thing is he is expected to get even bigger in the next few years as his body continues to mature and fill out.
But even while he is a hulking, menacing mass at the plate, outside the lines Weglarz is one of the kindest, gentlest young men in sports today....

LHP Scott Lewis was named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week today for the week ending August 10th. In two starts last week Lewis was unbelievable, and in 13.1 innings allowed just one unearned run.
