Indians, RHP Myers finalize deal

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have finalized a 1-year contract with free agent right-hander Brett Myers.

Myers, who pitched in relief last season for Houston and the Chicago White Sox, will likely fill a spot in Cleveland's starting rotation. Myers' $7 million deal includes a club option for 2014.

Myers has a career 97-93 record with 40 saves and a 4.20 ERA in 377 games - 249 starts. He has reached double digits in wins six times and pitched at least 200 innings three times, most recently in 2011 when he won 14 games.

Last season, Myers relieved for both the Astros and White Sox, who acquired him in a trade on July 21. The 32-year-old pitched in 70 games last season, going a combined 3-8 with a 3.31 ERA.

Myers spent eight seasons with Philadelphia before signing as a free agent with Houston in 2010.
