GOODYEAR, AZ - The Cleveland Indians have signed first baseman Nick Johnson.
No terms of the deal were announced.
Johnson was limited to 72 at-bats last season with the Yankees and did not play after May 7 due to a right wrist injury. According to the Indians, the recovery from surgery will prevent him from having a chance to open the season on the big league roster.
The oft-injured 32-year-old has compiled 91 home and 387 runs batted in over nine big league seasons with the Yankees, Expos, Nationals and Marlins.
