Tribe inks catcher Hernandez to Minors deal
The Indians have signed free-agent catcher Michel Hernandez to a Minor League contract for 2012 that includes a non-roster invitation to Spring Training, the club announced on Thursday.

Hernandez, 33, originally signed with Cleveland on July 1, hitting a combined .320 with 10 doubles and 26 RBIs in 39 games between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus.

The 14-year Minor League veteran has a .263 career Minor League average for various clubs since defecting from Cuba in 1996 and being signed by the Yankees two years later.
