The Indians and Carl Pavano have come to terms on a one year deal worth 1.5 million dollars, plus incentives. The Indians were intrigued by Pavano after his strong finish with the Yankees, going 4-2 in seven starts. The Indians would like Pavano to be their number three starter, behind Cliff Lee and Fuasto Carmona. Aside from landing a former 18-game winner, bringing Pavano into Cleveland, a low market town, should allow him to come back into form without too much pressure from reporters or the fans.
It's a great move for both sides.
