The Indians finally announce the Johnny Damon signing

My wife is crying upstairs. I hear cars coming to the house. General Manager of mine, I think it’s time you told your Don what everyone seems to know:

It had been known for several days that veteran outfielder Johnny Damon was being fitted for his Indians uniform, but there was still the matter of making things official. Cleveland took that step on Tuesday, announcing that it had signed Damon to a one-year Minor League contract.

Damon is in Goodyear, Arizona getting up to playing speed. He’ll likely join the team in early May.
