CLEVELAND (AP) Free agent catcher Mike Redmond has signed with the Cleveland Indians.
A 12-year veteran, Redmond gives the Indians some experience behind the plate following the club's trade of Kelly Shoppach to Tampa. Redmond won a World Series ring with Florida in 2003.
The 38-year-old has a career .289 batting average. Last season, he hit .237 in 45 games while backing up Minnesota's Joe Mauer.
Redmond spent the past five seasons with the Twins, batting .297 in 257 games.
