CLEVELAND (AP) -- Veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Indians.

Francoeur, who turns 30 on Wednesday, will report to spring training camp in Arizona, where he'll try to win a job on Cleveland's 25-man roster. A .263 career hitter, Francoeur nearly signed with the Indians four years ago.

He played with Kansas City and San Francisco last season, batting a combined .204 with three homers and 17 RBIs in 81 games. Francoeur has driven in at least 75 runs four times, and he won a Gold Glove with Atlanta in 2007.

Francoeur has 140 career homers and 618 RBIs in 1,227 games for the Braves, Mets, Rangers, Royals and Giants. He was drafted in the first round in 2002 by Atlanta.
