Indians Sign Relief Pitcher Carlos Torres To A Minor League Contract

Published

on

The Cleveland Indians have agreed to a minor league deal with free-agent relief pitcher Carlos Torres.

Torres, 35, spent the past two seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers. The veteran right-hander went 4-4 with a 4.21 ERA in 67 games pitched for the Brewers in 2017.

The Indians bullpen took a hit this season when Joe Smith and Bryan Shaw both decided to sign elsewhere in free agency. Smith signed a two-year deal with the Houston Astros, while Shaw inked a three-year contract with the Colorado Rockies.

With these vacancies in Cleveland’s bullpen, Torres has a decent chance to land a roster spot. He will begin to compete for a bullpen spot as spring training games kick off this weekend. The Indians will play the Cincinnati Reds in their spring training opener on Friday.
