From a fantasy perspective this sucks because it's not as easy to stash him but it makes more sense for Cleveland.
Good point Slomo. If I could stash him away on my DL, it would be a nice little gamble for later. I'm guessing if they actually signed him -- it's a "tentative deal", right now -- that he would of on their DL. That said, I probably wouldn't pick him up unless you have room to spare or a DL slot.
