CLEVELAND (AP) – Jon Garland may give the Cleveland Indians yet another option for their uncertain rotation.
The right-hander, who has won 132 games in the majors for five teams, agreed Monday to a minor league contract with the Indians, who have four starting spots filled but want to add depth and experience. Garland’s deal is contingent on him passing a physical in the next week at the Indians’ training complex in Goodyear, Ariz.
Garland’s 2011 season was cut short by a shoulder injury. He went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in just nine starts for the Dodgers before shoulder surgery in July.
As long as he passes his physical, the 32-year-old Garland would get a shot to start for the Indians, who still don’t know whether they will have the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona in 2012. Carmona, whose real name according to officials in the Dominican Republic is Roberto Heredia Hernandez, is facing charges of using a false identity in his native country so he could play in the U.S. He was...

Jason Kipnis (Photo: AP)The Indians acquisition of Casey Kotchman gives an answer (unsatisfactory to some) to the off-season-long question: Who’s on first?But what does this move spell out for the rest of the roster? Presumably, Kotchman will be given the chance to play 1B on an everyday basis and Matt LaPorta (proud owner of one remaining option) will be asked to compete in Columbus...
In a recent sit-down with the Plain Dealer, Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti stated that the team has received documentation that starting pitcher Fausto Carmona is officially named Roberto Hernandez (Heredia).
Arrested in January under suspicion of false identity, Hernandez, who was the recent recipient of a $7 million club option under his alias, was also found...
Jon Garland. Not bad! Alright, with there being literally nothing else to talk about, and with the primary just around the corner on March 6 (that will effectively decide the election), today’s as good a day as any to take a quick look at the race for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor, especially since the Plain Dealer ran a series of candidate profiles yesterday by Leila Atassi.
Kosuke Fukudome, the outfielder who had a cup of coffee with the 2011 Indians only to provide some surprise offensive prowess, has reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox.
The contract will net the 34-year-old $1 million with a $3.5 million club option in 2013. Between the Cubs and Indians in 2011, Fukudome batted .262 with an OPS of .712. With the injuries sustained...
The Cleveland Indians are apparently looking to corner the market on soft-throwing, location-based right handers as the team is reportedly in the mix for veteran starting pitcher Jon Garland.
Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians are “working on” a deal for Garland, 32, with apparent hopes of providing another inning-eating starter on a relative discount. The...
What else can baseball fans do in January but dream of October? In You May Say I'm a Dreamer, the Outside Corner staff will imagine the route to a World Series in 2012 title for all 30 teams.
The very notion of a team from Cleveland winning a championship is one that only exists in dreams, but in 2012, that dream finally came true when the Indians were on the receiving end...
Today, former Indians and Cubs outfielder Kosuke Fukudome signed with the Chicago White Sox, for the low cost of $1 million. When I saw this, I immediately began to think how great of a fit he would have been with the Braves, especially at that price.The Braves' fourth outfielder right now is Matt Diaz, with Jose Constanza looking to rip that title from him. We all know what...

On Monday, the Indians and pitcher Jon Garland were reportedly working on a Minor League contract that would include an invitation to attend Spring Training. The Indians have not confirmed that they are near a deal with Garland.
On Tuesday, Cleveland designated Minor League left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz for assignment, vacating a spot on the team's 40-man roster for the recently-signed Casey Kotchman. The roster stands at capacity.
Kosuke Fukudome agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract with the Chicago White Sox that guarantees $1 million. He will get a $500,000 salary this year, and the White Sox have a $3.5-million option for 2013 with a $500,000 buyout.
According to Andrew Rickli, via Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a Minor League deal with right handed pitcher Jon Garland. The deal is pending physical adds Rosenthal.
Garland went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in 54 innings, nine starts with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011. He had a 4.7 K/9, 3.3 BB/9 and 1.0 HR/9 in 2011. The right hander is a career 12.4...
