      Indians' Craig Stammen: Signs minor league contract with Indians on Monday

      Stammen signed a minor league contract with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training. Stammen sat out for most of 2015 with a forearm injury, which led to the Nationals non-tendering the 31-year-old. That being said, he has had some decent numbers out of the bullpen during his career, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with nearly a strikeout per inning from 2012 through 2014. If he can get back to full health, Stammen could prove to be a nice under-the-radar pickup for Cleveland.

Gonzalez gave up five hits and four walks in six and a third innings. He left with the bases loaded, still leading the Phillies 1-0. "I was trying to be too perfect. I walked people, hit a guy. Just when you think you are on a fast pace, they slow you down and that's what happened," Gonzalez said per "I was nitpicking the corners. They kept fouling off pitches. They worked the count pretty well. I did a good job, but at the end of the day, they battled and they did a great job." Cedeno gave up a single and a hit batter to the only two Phillies' batters he faced, allowing two runs to score. Craig Stammen allowed a single and a sacrifice fly, leaving Gonzalez with three runs allowed. Gonzalez next starts on Wednesday, at Boston against Wade Miley.
