Indians | Jose Abreu out of budget plans

In his weekly question and answer column, Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter Paul Hoynes suggests the Cleveland Indians were never serious contenders for OF Jose Abreu. Hoynes said a lot of clubs felt the Chicago White Sox paid too much for Abreu at $68 million for six years. He's reportedly not as athletic as Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig and Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes and is more of a DH/first base type who is going to have to put up big numbers to justify the contract.
