With less than a week to go until players report to spring training, another name has come off of the market.
Free agent outfielder Matt Joyce announced via Twitter that he had signed a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians. According to reports in the Associated Press, the deal includes an invitation to spring training and is pending a physical. If he is added to the Indians’ 40-man roster, he will receive a $1.25 million salary while in the Majors and he could earn an additional $500,000 in bonuses.
The Indians had not formally announced the signing at the time of this story.
