CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians have signed utilityman Ryan Raburn and outfielder Ben Francisco to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.
DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers have released outfielder Ryan Raburn.
Raburn started the 2012 season as a big part of Detroit's plans, but the 31-year-old hit just .171 in 66 games.
It's a rare event indeed when the visiting lineup at a spring training game features more regulars than the home lineup.
More and more good news on the injury front from Viera: Michael Morse emerged from his first game back from a lat strain feeling strong, so he's in the lineup again tonight serving as DH.
