Indians | Will lose their third pick

The Cleveland Indians will lose their third pick in this year's draft (69th overall) after signing OF Michael Bourn. Their first-round pick (fifth overall) was protected and their second-round pick was forfeited when they signed OF Nick Swisher. Bourn will instantly become the team's new leadoff hitter, and the team has no plans to move him out of center field. If Swisher remains in right field, OF Drew Stubbs will likely be the odd-man out in the outfield. Swisher could also be asked to move to first base, making 1B Mark Reynolds the full-time designated hitter.
