Johnny Damon Could Make $1.4 Million This Season For Indians

Johnny Damon is officially apart of the Cleveland Indians. The only remaining thing that needed to be disclosed were the specifics of his deal and those are now available, thanks to ESPN's Buster Olney:

Damon hit .261/.326/.418 with 16 home runs and 19 stolen bases last season for over $5 million with the Tampa Bay Rays, so the Indians are arguably getting quite the bargain for the 38-year-old veteran.

Damon will still need time to get in game shape since he is joining the Indians without the luxury of a Spring Training and without facing live pitching since the end of last season. He will have to play outfield, too, because the Indians already have Travis Hafner as their primary designated hitter.
