General Manager Mark Shapiro, given a choice, wants to improve the Indians' starting pitching before the season begins.If that choice doesn't present itself, he'll improve the bullpen, which is still trying to recover from last week's loss of closer Bob Wickman.
 

It is that logic that has sparked the Indians' interest in Ugueth Urbina, the former closer for the world champion Florida Marlins. Urbina did not re-sign with the Marlins and is still in free-agent limbo. He has said he will sit out this season or possibly sign with a team in Japan.Urbina, who helped the Florida Marlins win the World Series last season, took a physical for the Indians on Monday.The 30-year-old Urbina was 3-4 with a 2.81 ERA last season and converted 32 of 38 save opportunities for Texas and Florida. He saved four games for Florida during the postseason.Pittsburgh and Minnesota reportedly were interested in Urbina during the off-season, but could not come to terms with the 30-year-old right-hander. He made $4.5 million last year.
