Indians Sign Jesse English

The Indians have brought on soft throwing lefty Jesse English. Initially a draft pick for the Giants, English spent the past two seasons pitching for the Nationals, breaking onto their Major League squad briefly last season, making seven relief appearances.

At one point in time English was thought to be a potential back-end starter, but with a fastball the works in 86-88 range, he's ended up to be better suited in the bullpen and looks like he could serve as a low-leverage lefty-specialist.
