Graffanino coming to camp
The Indians have signed infielder Tony Graffanino to a Minor League contract and invited him to spring camp. He’ll be here Monday.
Graffanino, 36, has played 12 big-league seasons with six teams, batting a combined .267 with 58 homers and 302 RBIs. He was batting .238 with nine homers and 30 RBIs in 86 games for the Brewers in 2007 before suffering a season-ending right knee injury in August.
Last year, coming off the knee rehabilitation, Graffanino signed a Minor League deal with the Tribe and played in 25 games at Triple-A Buffalo. He hit .315 with seven doubles, a triple and six RBIs, playing all four infield spots.
Graffanino is the 20th non-roster player invited to camp.
