Indians Rumors: Cleveland Interested in Ryan Raburn

The Cleveland Indians have expressed some interest in free agent utility player Ryan Raburn, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

Raburn had spent his entire professional career with the Detroit Tigers before being released by the club in November. While he had been a solid reserve player for the club, his numbers tailed off significantly last season.

Over 66 games spanning 205 at-bats, Raburn only hit .171/.226/.254 last year for the Tigers. While these numbers are ghastly, he did hit 22 doubles and 14 home runs for the team in 2011 and combined to hit at a clip of .285/.348/.498 from 2009-10.

During Raburn’s time with the Tigers, the 31-year-old has manned every position but shortstop and catcher. Last season he played both corner outfield positions and second base.
