Analysis: The Indians signed Damon to a minor league deal on April 17 and it will become a one-year, $1.25 million major league contract when he's added to the 40-man roster. The 38-year-old has spent the past two weeks at Cleveland's training facility in Goodyear, Ariz., preparing to play after not being in a training camp. Damon, who needs 277 hits to reach 3,000 for his career, is expected to split playing time with Shelley Duncan in left field.

Analysis: The 38-year-old reached agreement with Cleveland last week on a one-year, $1.2 million pending a physical.

The Indians are the fourth team in four years for Damon, who played in 150 games for Tampa Bay last season. Damon has played at least 140 games in 16 straight seasons.

The club has been in talks to finalize a deal with the 38-year-old, who is 277 hits shy of 3,000. In a text to the Associated Press, Damon said: ``It should be done soon.''
Analysis: Damon played with Tampa Bay - his sixth AL team - last season, batting .261 with 16 homers and 73 RBIs in 150 games. Damon would probably need some time to get ready after not being in a spring training camp. If Damon signs, the Indians would be his fourth team in four years. Cleveland is off to a 1-4 start and entered Thursday batting .178, the majors' lowest average. The Indians begin a three-game series in Kansas City on Friday.
