Indians sign lefty Zagurski

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians added depth to their bullpen, signing left-hander Mike Zagurski to a minor league contract with an invitation to training camp this spring.

Zagurski spent time with Oakland, Pittsburgh and the New York Yankees last season. The 30-year-old went a combined 6-3 with a 3.04 ERA and two saves in 45 appearances - all at Triple-A. He struck out 83 in 53 1-3 innings, an impressive average of 14 strikeouts per nine innings.

The Indians had issues getting out left-handed hitters last season. The club acquired lefty Marc Rzepczynski in a trade from St. Louis in July to help address the problem. Zagurski, assuming he makes the club, brings another layer of support.

Zagurski began his career in Philadelphia's organization. He has a 3.16 ERA in 89 major league games.
