Rotowire's Jeff Erickson on Indians, D-backs, Angels, Blue Jays , Pirates, A's, & Red Sox

Jeff says the Indian's bullpen is looking especially good with young Fernando Cabrera as possible closer material. Also optimistic about Howry, Rafael Betancourt, & Riske. On the Diamondbacks, Eric Byrnes is a short-term defensive hire til Chris Young is ready; shows management doesn't have much faith in Luis Terrero. On the Angels needs for bats, says Casey Kotchman will help. On signing Troy Glaus, the Blue Jays will look to trade Hillenbrand, Hinske, or Koskie. On the Pirates, is high on p's Oliver Perez & Kip Wells, & bullpen p's Mike Gonzalez & Damaso Marte. With the A's, Mark Ellis is under the radar--has good BA and power. High on Dan Johnson at 1B. The Red Sox CF is more likely to be Jeremy Reed than Coco Crisp at this point. They are extremely well-stocked with pitchers.
