Indians trade for Kosuke Fukudome

It’s better than nothing, and it’s certainly better than the platoon we have out in right field while Shin-Soo Choo is hurt.

Kosuke Fukudome was signed by the Cubs for years ago for a massive amount of money, and he has underperformed. That said, he’s an excellent outfielder and he has a very good on-base percentage. He gives the Tribe a quality outfielder to help them through this rough spot with the injuries to Sizemore and Choo. Not a bad move, and given the Tribe’s track record of spotting talent on other teams, we might be pleasantly surprised.
