Indians Add Ryan Spilborghs, Gregorio Petit On Minor League Deals

The Cleveland Indians added free agent outfielder Ryan Spilborghs on Friday, according to the MLB website. They are bringing him in on a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training. The signing is still pending a physical at this point. Cleveland struggled with their outfield last year, going through long stretches without their starters. Any outfield with Grady Sizemore in it will be suffering some injuries, so to speak.

Spilborghs brings the Indians up to 12 outfielders in camp, and they might end up with more when it's all said and done. They're anticipating a healthy outfield to start the season, but it's clear the Indians don't want to have the same troubles they did last year.

According to the report, the team also agreed to terms with infielder Gregorio Petit on a Minor League contract. Petit also received a Sprint Training invite. The 27 year-old was released by San Diego in February, following a serious knee injury in winter play that put him out for the whole season.
