Indians have not signed LeVon Washington
There were early reports that the Indians and second-round pick LeVon Washington had agreed to a deal worth $1.55 million. Since that initial report, there’s been a little backtracking, with a report via Twitter saying that the deal “wasn’t quite done” and correctly pointing out that no over-slot deal would be announced this early. Those kinds of things dont’ happen until August.
The Indians, however, say it’s nowhere close to being “not quite done,” that Cleveland hasn’t even spoken with Washington at this point.
“We absolutely do not have any agreements across the board,” said Indians assistant general manager John Mirabelli. “Our approach was based on ability and talent. We selected what we thought was the best player. Hopefully, we will get many of them signed.”
