The Indians have reached an agreement on a minor league contract with Felix Pie, tweets Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. Pie could earn up to $1MM with performance bonuses, and has the option to opt out of the deal before Opening Day.
Pie, 26, ranked among Baseball America's Top 100 prospects each year from 2003 to 2007, but has never become a full-time player in the bigs. In parts of five seasons with the Cubs and Orioles, the outfielder hit .249/.298/.374 in 1051 plate appearances.

While I admit that I was not a fan of him in his time here, I hope he can make the team and earn some playing time with Cleveland. He has the ability, but the mental errors are so terrible to watch... I literally thought he was mentally inept at times.
I wish him the best though.
