Indians Sign Chris Ray To Minor League Deal, Invite Him To Camp

It's been awhile since we've heard from the Cleveland Indians, who have had a very quiet offseason to date. The signing of Grady Sizemore was the only real big news, and there wasn't even a lot of small signings or small potential deals to report on. Now there is a little bit of news, as the team has announced that they've signed free agent reliever Chris Ray to a minor league contract.

The team invited Ray to training camp, and there's a solid chance he could make it with an opening in their bullpen. Overall, he's 18-19 with a 4.10 ERA and 51 saves over 283 major league appearances, but has performed better in recent years. He went 3-2 with a 4.68 ERA in 29 games last season, but in 2010, went 5-0 with two saves for the Rangers and Giants.

Already boasting a strong bullpen, the addition of Ray is interesting. He's certainly shown flashes of very strong play here and there, so it would seem that the Indians are trying to cover all of their bases for that remaining spot on the bullpen.
