The Cleveland Indians have signed 2 more free agents to minor league deals. They Signed Jeremy Hermida who spent last season with San Diego, splitting time between the Padres and their Triple-A affiliate. Hermida is 29-years-old and has a .257 average, 65 homers and 250 RBIs with Florida, Boston, Oakland, Cincinnati and San Diego. The guy has been around, He played only 60 games last year in baseball because of injuries. Just what the Cleveland Indians need, another guy that is injury prone, at least they signed him to a minor league deal and didn’t give him 5 million dollars to sit on the bench all season.
Omir Santos is a catcher and he is 31-years-old. Santos split last season with Detroit and Colorado. He batted a combined .310 with two homers and 30 RBIs in 61 games between Triple-A Toledo and Triple-A Colorado Springs. He was called up by the Tigers last season and only played in 3 games. He did play 96 games for the New York Mets in 2009, batting .260 with seven homers and 40 RBIs. Santos was drafted by the Yankees in 2001.
It doesn’t look like the Tribe over extended themselves with any of these guys and they will be lucky to be around once the season starts.
