The Indians bring back first baseman Russell Branyan, whom they originally drafted in 1994 and who played for the team until 2002. Coming off his best year in the majors, in which he slugged 31 homers for Seattle, Branyan missed the last month of the season with an ailing back and his health remains a concern. Branyan would spend 52 games with the Indians before being traded back to Seattle.
