Indians Release Fred Lewis

The Indians released outfielder Fred Lewis, according to's Jordan Bastian (on Twitter). They had signed Lewis to a minor league contract in January.

Lewis posted a .230/.321/.317 line in 210 plate appearances for Cincinnati last year, but he spent time on the disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle. The 31-year-old played both corner outfield positions for the Reds, who signed him for $900K. Lewis, a left-handed hitter, has a track record of success against right-handed pitching (.780 career OPS).
