The Indians will sign infielder Cristian Guzman to a minor league contract with a spring training invite, tweets MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. He took his physical today and the deal will likely become official tomorrow.
Guzman, 33, last played in the Majors in 2010 with the Nationals and Rangers. He sat out the 2011 season due to a shoulder injury, he told Bastian. Guzman is a career .271/.307/.383 hitter who has appeared at both middle infield positions.
