Indians, catcher Ryan Hanigan agree to minor league deal

February 12, 2018

CLEVELAND (AP) Free agent Ryan Hanigan has agreed to a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians, a deal contingent on the catcher passing a physical.

The 37-year-old played 33 games last season for the Colorado Rockies, batting .267 with two homers and 12 RBIs.

With Yan Gomes and Robert Perez on the roster, it is unlikely Hanigan could win a spot with the Indians, but he does give them protection and another experienced catcher during training camp.

Hanigan has also played for Boston, Tampa Bay and Cincinnati during an 11-year major league career.
