Damon to Indians

Further, Damon's deal includes out clause that will allow him to leave after Seizmore returns and no trade clause






Now that's interesting.

What if Grady returns, Damon leaves, and Sizemore goes back on the DL a week later? Is Damon coming back to the team, or ...?

He's a poor defender now but definitely an offensive upgrade over Shelly Duncan in LF.


Really not sure how he was able to manage to get a 38 year old with bad knees a contract with a no trade clause & ability to opt out...Guess the Indians were just extremely desperate.

Not a done deal quite yet...





ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that there is no agreement between the Indians and free agent Johnny Damon.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal wrote Wednesday night that the Indians were "to sign" Damon, and it's still possible that they will, but talks are ongoing. "The Indians and Johnny Damon are in the early stages of conversations on a possible deal," a source told Bowden, "so the reports are premature and surprising." Damon, 38, batted .261/.326/.418 with 16 homers, 73 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 150 games last year for the Rays.

Finally official.






Indians signed OF/DH Johnny Damon to a minor league contract.

It's finally official. Assuming Damon is ready to join the Indians in early-May, he'll make a salary of $1.25 million and could earn an additional $1.4 million in performance-based incentives. The deal also includes a verbal opt-out agreement if he isn't getting enough at-bats. Of course, that shouldn't be much of an issue as long as Grady Sizemore (back) remains on the disabled list. Damon will be a liability defensively in left field, but he's a borderline play in most mixed fantasy leagues.
