The Cleveland Indians have signed 38-year old righty Matt Herges and 30-year old righty Vinnie Chulk to minor league deals. Herges pitched in 58 games (0 starts) last season for the Rockies and he was 3-4 with a 5.04 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP. He has now pitched in 537 games (4 starts) in his major league career and he is 40-34 with 34 saves, a 3.94 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Vinnie Chulk pitched in 27 games (0 starts) for the Giants last season and he was 0-3 with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has now pitched in 244 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 7-14 with 2 saves, a 4.36 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. These were good signings for the Indians who had massive problems in the bullpen in 2008. Both of these guys will have decent shots of pitching for the Indians at some point in 2009.
