With the minor league deal, the contract comes with an invitation to spring training. The 42-year-old could make a base salary of $750,000 plus incentives if he makes the roster.
Once the season ended, he wasn't sure if he would play again. He was even a candidate for the Colorado Rockies managerial job once the season ended.
Once he was passed over for being manager, he considered being the Rockies hitting coach. But he apparently, he did not want to hang up the cleats just yet.
He will compete for a bench role with the Indians. Should he make the roster, he would bring a left-handed power threat to their bench.
He played in 60 games last season with the Rockies and had a .225 batting average. He had just one home run and 8 RBI's on the year.
