CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) - UPDATE 5:15pm – The signing of Brett Myers is a done deal if he passes a physical. A source confirmed with 92.3 The Fan that the deal will happen and Myers will get every shot to win a spot in the starting rotation.

2:41pm – The Indians have been searching all winter for a starting pitcher, and the New Year just may have found them one.

Reports state the team has come to terms pending a physical with Brett Myers, a 32-year-old who was with the White Sox last season. He was the Phillies first-round pick (12th overall) in the 1999 amateur draft.

Eugene Frenette from the Florida Times-Union tweeted out the following about Myers deision: Former Englewood H. pitcher Brett Myers declined option to stay with White Sox, will sign with #Indians tomorrow as starter pending physical

Myers will come to the Indians to likely try and win a 4th or 5th spot in the rotation. Last season he pitched with both Houston and with Chicago. Overall he was 3-8 with a 3.31 ERA in 70 games with 65.1 innings pitched.

While with the Astros, he saved 19 games before being traded to the White Sox, where he was 3-4 with a 3.29 ERA, throwing 34.2 innings in 35 games.

He was a starter with the Astros in 2011, going 7-14 with a 4.36 ERA. The season before in 2010 he was 14-8 with a 3.14 ERA.

In 11 seasons he’s an overall 97-93 with a 4.20 ERA.
