UPDATE: The Indians sign Jon Garland to a minor league deal

UPDATE: It’s now being reported that the Indians have a minor league deal in place for Garland, pending a physical.

8:50 AMKen Rosenthal reports this morning that the Indians are “working on” a deal for righty Jon Garland.

Garland used to be a decent innings-eater, but the innings ate him last year. His season ended in July with rotator cuff surgery.  He’s not likely to start spring training on time or, at the very least, at 100%.  I’d assume that this would be a minor league deal with lots of incentives built in if he makes the club.
