Francisco Cruceta was claimed off waivers and optioned to Tacoma. Per rotoworld:
A fine pickup. Cruceta, who DFA'd to open up a spot for Jason Young on the Indians' 40-man roster, was 6-4 with a 5.19 ERA, 123 H and 92/32 K/BB in 102 1/3 IP for Triple-A Buffalo. He's talented enough to develop into a bottom-of-the-rotation starter or a quality middle reliever.
I'm excited about this to be honest.
Jeff's note: Cruceta's reputation has always exceeded his performance - other than 20 starts in A-ball in 2002, he hasn't been much to look at - but he's still just 24, and John Sickels rated him as a B- prospect entering the year. It's like free talent for the AAA team.
