Felix PieAccording to a report in the Baltimore Sun on Sunday, the Indians have agreed to terms with Felix Pie on a minor league contract with an invite to Major League spring training. The Indians have yet to formally announce the signing, likely because final terms of the deal are still being completed and he has to pass a physical.
