Round drafted (overall draft slot): 8th (251st). Eric was a redshirt junior accounting for his college senior-like age.

Signing status: Will sign on June 24th

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 210'

Birthdate: 4-22-1986

Stats 2008: 4.34 ERA 8-4 74.2 ip 70 H 40 R 34 ER 34 BB 67 K

Farm team assigned to: Mahoning Valley.

Role at Arizona this year: Began season in bullpen to build up arm strength post-Tommy John Surgery that he had in July, 2006 (he redshirted in 2007). Ended year in starting rotation.

Role with Indians: He will report to Mahoning Valley after he passes his physical and will be used as a starting pitcher.

Stuff: Fastball 90-93 now (touched 96 before TJ), curveball, changeup. His command is still lacking a little which is commonly the last thing to come back after TJ surgery.

Bonus: $125,000

He said: "It sounds like Cleveland has some diehard fans and I am excited to start my professional career and continue to get stronger with better command after my surgery. I will give it my all to win and bring success to the Indians organization."
