As mentioned earlier, the Cleveland Indians have an interest in right-handed pitcher Takafumi Nakamura.  Since Nakamura went unselected during the draft on Thursday, the two sides have begun discussing a contract and it now seems as though they might be ready to announce a minor league deal.

The Indians apparently like his size (he's 194cm tall and weighs in at 90kg) and feel that he's a risk worth taking.

According to the article, the Indians plan to announce the signing sometime in the middle of November and will start Nakamura at single A ball.
