Indians activate Cabrera, option Hagadone to Columbus
Today the Cleveland Indians announced that they have activated shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera from the bereavement list.

The anatomy of the Johnny Damon deal
The Cleveland Indians have apparently signed free agent Johnny Damon to a one-year contract as a stop-gap measure to a struggling offense. While many see this as a reactionary deal, the road to signing Johnny Damon actually began last July, when the Indians first tried to address their offensive issues. Here's a look at the path to Johnny Damon.

Today the Cleveland Indians announced that they have signed catcher Carlos Santa to a five year contract extension which also includes a club option for 2017.
