The Indians announced today that 3rd round pick right-handed pitcher Jake Sisco
and 4th round pick catcher Jake Lowery
have signed. Lowery has been assigned to short-season Single-A Mahoning Valley, but no word on where Sisco will go though he likely will go to rookie-level Arizona to start out to build himself back up.
Also the Indians have signed undrafted free agent right-handed pitcher Drew Rucinski out of Ohio State University. He went 5-3 with a 2.95 ERA in 13 starts during his senior season at Ohio State (team-high 82.1 IP, 81 H, 27 ER, 53 K). He earned second team All-Big Ten honors and ranked fifth in the conference in ERA.
