Quote to note

"That's the big thing, is having an opportunity. The Nationals, they had a good team full of talent and veterans. There was nowhere for me to really go. I'm just thankful the Indians are giving me that chance. I feel alright. I don't feel good, but hopefully I can show them something while I'm figuring out that learning curve."
-- Indians outfielder Zach Walters
