Talbot Headed to the Indians

Mitch Talbot will be the player to-be-named later in the Dec. 1 deal that saw the Rays acquire Kelly Shoppach from the Indians for a player to be named.

Talbot was acquired from the Astros, along with Ben Zobrist, in a 2006 deal that sent Aubrey Huff to the Astros. The right-hander has constantly shown good stuff and seemed destined to join the Rays in 2009 except he experienced arm problems. He did pitch well during the Arizona Fall League.
