GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Indians outfielder Michael Brantley is among 11 players to sign one-year contracts with Cleveland.
Brantley will start in left field following the team's signing of free agent center fielder Michael Bourn. He resumes workouts Thursday after he was spiked last week during an exhibition game and needed 15 stitches. Manager Terry Francona said Brantley could be playing in games by this weekend.
The Indians also signed starting third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, right-handers Cody Allen, Trey Haley, Corey Kluber, Zach McAllister, Danny Salazar and Bryan Shaw, outfielder Tim Fedroff, left-hander T.J. House and infielder Chris McGuiness.
All the signed players have less than three years of major league experience and are not eligible for salary arbitration.
