The Cleveland Indians continued adding low-risk depth to its spring training roster on Thursday as the team announced that free agent relievers Evan Marshall and Neil Ramirez had been signed to minor league contracts with non-roster invitations to spring training.
The Indians also formally announced the signing of outfielder Brandon Barnes. The 31-year-old veteran of five Major League seasons spent all of the 2017 season with the Miami Marlins’ Triple-A New Orleans affiliate.
Marshall, 27, is a right-hander who has worked exclusively in relief during his Major League career. He debuted in 2014, just a few years after the Arizona Diamondbacks made him a fourth round selection in the 2011 draft out of Kansas State University.
