The Indians' today signed veteran right-hander Luis Vizcaino to a minor league deal.

Will he be another potential gas can or a guy the club can actually count on? The 34-year-old journeyman reliever posted a 5.28 ERA in 43 appearances as a Colorado Rockie last year.

He was acquired this year by the Cubs and pitched 3 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball.

Apparently he ticked off Lou Pinella for showing up late to the first two games of the season and showed up to spring training late and overweight.

As long as he makes it to the pen by the fifth inning and gets batters out, sleep in that extra hour Louie and eat a breakfast burrito.

He is owed $4 million by the Cubs for 2009, so I imagine he signed a veteran minimum contract with the Tribe.

Vizcaino has had success in the past and throws pretty hard. I imagine he can't be any worse than what is getting thrown out there day in and day out.
