But seriously, it shows how highly Manny continues to regard Kearns, for whatever reason. Yeah, he is a decent defensive OF but he hasn't been able to hit major league pitching in a couple years now. At least this is happening in Cleveland, not Nats Park. It's a low-risk move for the Indians. If Kearns continues to struggle at the plate, then they can send him to the minor leagues without having a lot of money tied up with him.
