Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians have signed Japanese outfielder Takuya Tsuchida.
Information on the 18-year-old is scarce, but Hoynes says he's "a left-handed hitter with speed and athleticism who can play several positions," with center field and second base being his best positions "right now." Tsuchida will go to spring training with the Indians' minor leaguers and seems to be a ways off from being big league-ready.
