The 30-year-old batted .286 with one homer and 22 RBIs in 114 games last season with Minnesota. Tyner's homer was his first in 1,356 major league at-bats, and it came in Cleveland against Indians right-hander Jake Westbrook.
Tyner, who hit .299 against right-handers, will give the Indians some outfield depth in case of injuries or should the club decide to make a trade this spring.
He also has played for New York Mets and Tampa Bay.
