Claimed RHP Sean Douglass off Waivers from the Detroit Tigers

This is pretty much a blah move, unless the Indians see something in Douglass that I don't. Douglass has  bounced between AAA and the majors the past couple of years, and for a good reason: he puts up pretty decent numbers in AAA, but can't get major-league hitters out. His showing in Toledo this season was impressive, but what's differentiating him from Steve Watkins or Kyle Denney? Not much, and both of them are now available as minor-league free agents.
