|

CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has signed free agent INF/OF NATE SPEARS to a Minor League contract with a non-roster invitation to 2013 Major League spring training camp.

Spears, 27, spent most of the 2012 season with the Pawtucket Red Sox where he hit .240 (83-345) with 16 doubles, 4 triples, 10 homers and 38RBI in 108 games. He appeared at every position on the diamond with the exception of pitcher, catcher and center field.  He also played in 3 games with Boston in April after Jacoby Ellsbury was injured.  The left-handed hitting jack-of-all-trades began his professional career in 2003 with Baltimore and played four seasons in the Cubs Player Development system from 2006-09.

Also today the Indians outrighted RHP Fabio Martinez to the Triple-A Columbus Roster.   Martinez was designated for assignment on November 20.
