Jon Garland is out as a starting option for the Cleveland Indians, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Garland was scheduled to take the team physical on Monday, but he didn't take it, preventing his minor league contract from being finalized.

Garland, 32, enters his 13th season having missed most of 2011 following shoulder surgery. Jim Bowden of ESPN is saying that Garland is still continuing his rehabilitation but isn't ready to compete for a job, and that presumably (my speculation) prevented him from attempting the physical.
