Indians Sign Robinson Tejeda

The Indians signed right-handed reliever Robinson Tejeda to a minor league deal with a spring training invite, reports MLB.com's Jordan Bastian.  The 29-year-old entered the 2011 season as the Royals' setup man, but quickly lost the job partly due to a shoulder injury.  He was removed from the team's 40-man roster in June and elected free agency in October.

When healthy Tejeda spent most of the 2011 season at Triple-A, posting a 3.80 ERA, 8.6 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, and 1.60 HR/9 in 45 relief innings.  Tejeda did some solid work for the Royals at times in 2009-10, with a 9.6 K/9 and an average fastball around 94 miles per hour.  His heater was down to 90.2 in 2011, probably in relation to his injury.  The Indians' press release says he finished the season healthy at Omaha.

The Indians' other non-roster invitees so far include Luke Carlin, Michel Hernandez, Matt Pagnozzi, Andy LaRoche, Jose Lopez, and Felix Pie.
