    Freeman signed a minor-league contract with Cleveland on Tuesday, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports.

  • Indians' Jean Carlos Mejia: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Mejia was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Tuesday, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports.

    Mejia hasn't made it past High-A through four minor-league seasons, but the Indians evidently feel strongly about his future and will protect him from the Rule 5 draft by moving him to the 40-man roster. Bobby Bradley and Sam Hentges were also added prior to the deadline.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Added to 40-man roster

    Hentges (shoulder) had his contract purchased from High-A Lynchburg on Tuesday.

    Adding Hentges to the 40-man roster protects the 22-year-old from the Rule 5 draft. Across 23 starts for the Hillcats in 2018, Hentges posted a 3.27 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 122:53 K:BB (118.1 innings). The southpaw figures to report to Double-A Akron to begin the 2019 campaign.

  • Indians' Bobby Bradley: Joins 40-man roster

    Bradley was added to the 40-man roster Tuesday, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports.

    The Indians purchased Bradley's contract to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He found a fair amount of success with Triple-A Columbus (.254/.323/.430 slash line over 32 games) but doesn't appear to be ready for the big leagues just yet.

  • Indians' Leonys Martin: To have normal offseason

    Martin (illness) was officially cleared for regular offseason strength training and conditioning Tuesday, Anthony Castrovince of reports.

    Martin suffered a major health scare in August and he spent time in the hospital while battling a life-threatening illness. Although he was shut down for the remainder of the 2018 season a few months ago, he was finally cleared to take part in normal offseason activities and will be at 100 percent for the start of spring training. Martin is in line to serve as Cleveland's starting center fielder for the 2019 campaign after inking a one-year deal at the end of October.

  • Indians' Walker Lockett: Dealt to Cleveland

    Lockett has been traded from the Padres to the Indians for an undisclosed minor leaguer, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Lockett was shipped to the Indians to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. The 24-year-old appeared in four games (three starts) for the Padres last season, allowing 16 runs while striking out 12 over 15 innings. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign with Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers.

  • Indians' Chih-Wei Hu: Dealt to Cleveland

    Hu was traded to the Indians from the Rays in exchange for infielder Gionti Turner on Monday.

    The 25-year-old spent much of the season with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate, producing a 4.66 ERA and a 92:28 K:BB in 102 innings split between 19 starts and five relief appearances. He also has 23 innings of major-league experience under his belt from the past two seasons, allowing nine runs with a 21:7 K:BB in that span. Hu figures to be in the mix for a bullpen spot with his new club, though he does have an option remaining if Cleveland bolsters its bullpen more with veteran arms.

  • Indians' Max Moroff: Sent to Indians

    The Pirates traded Moroff and Jordan Luplow to the Indians on Wednesday in exchange for Erik Gonzalez, Tahnaj Thomas and Dante Mendoza.

    Moroff spent most of the 2018 campaign at Triple-A Indianapolis, hitting .223/.334/.393 with eight home runs and 38 RBI in 74 games. He had a couple stints with the Pirates' big-league club but failed to cement any sort of significant role with the team, instead serving as organizational depth around the infield. Expect to see the 25-year-old utilized in the same manner with Cleveland in 2019.

  • Indians' Jordan Luplow: Dealt to Cleveland

    Luplow (abdomen) was traded to Cleveland from Pittsburgh on Wednesday along with Max Moroff in exchange for Erik Gonzalez, Tahnaj Thomas and Dante Mendoza.

    Luplow played in 37 games at the big-league level this past season, slashing .185/.272/.359 with three home runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases in 103 plate appearances. The 25-year-old required an appendectomy procedure in late September but is likely back to 100 percent already, so there should be no cause for concern regarding his status entering spring training. Luplow will get a chance to crack the Indians' Opening Day roster, though he could wind up spending a majority of his time in the minors for the third straight year after debuting for the Pirates in 2017.
