Pavano finds a home

Carl Pavano is the latest ex-Yankee to find a home.

Jerry Crasnick is reporting that the Cleveland Indians have signed the oft-injured right-hander to a one-year contract this afternoon. A dollar amount was not disclosed.

Crasnick says the deal could have a low base salary and performance incentives.

I think it's safe to say Pavano will receive a rude welcome if and when he pitches in New York this season.

Update - 4:35 p.m.: Jon Heyman says the deal is for $1.5 million but could reach as high as $6.8 million if he makes 18 starts and pitches 130 innings. That's no easy task; Pavano didn't reach 18 starts in any season as a Yankee, and only made 26 starts with the club in four years.
