Jon GarlandBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The Indians have agreed to a deal with veteran right-hander Jon Garland to a minor-league deal with an invitation to big-league camp pending a physical, CBSSports.com insider Jon Heyman reports.

Garland, 32, was 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in nine starts for the Dodgers last season. He had shoulder surgery in July, ending his season.

In parts of 12 seasons with six different teams, Garland is 132-119 with a 4.32 ERA. He won 18 games in back-to-back years for the White Sox in 2005 and 2006.

He's decent enough to have gotten a major league deal .... The Indians made good with getting him on a minor league deal. Garland goes up and down from year to year so last was bad so this year he should be good.

Either they're gearing up for a ton of pitching injuries or they're gonna trade a pitcher for a bat.   We can only have so many starters.   Carmona will be here.   Even if he has legal issues at this point the Indians aren't going to cut him loose because he has a great arm.  We have essentailly 6 pitchers to fill two spots.  I'm just wondering if Tomlin is fully recovered.  I haven't heard anything about him this offseason, good or bad.
