Vlad Guerrero released from jail, maintains his innocence

Yesterday Vlad Guerrero was arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer. Today he was released, and he denies that he did anything wrong:

Given that he denies all wrongdoing, those jokes from yesterday about him swinging at everything are totally premature.  Sorry.  But today’s jokes about how strange it is to see him take a walk — even if it is out of jail — are timely.

Indians sign Marc Rzepczynski

The Cleveland Indians announced this afternoon that they have signed reliever Marc Rzepczynski to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Columbus.

Rzepczynski was released by the Mariners earlier this month after 18 games in which he allowed nine runs in seven and two-thirds innings. A lot of that damage came at the hands of right-handed hitters, which he probably shouldn’t be facing, so maybe Terry Francona will get some better luck by deploying him a bit more judiciously.

He’s still being paid by the Mariners for the final few months of the two-year, $11 million deal he signed before the 2017 season, so it’s worth it for the Indians to try and see if they can get anything out of him.
