The Cleveland Indians are considering signing former stars Jim Thome and Travis Hafner, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

But the team is not interested in another former Indians star -- outfielder Manny Ramirez, who retired in 2011 after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs during spring training. Ramirez is attempting a comeback.

Thome, 42, played for Cleveland from 1990 to 2002, and again for part of the the 2011 season. Last year, he hit .252 in 58 games split between the Phillies and Orioles.

Hafner, 35, has played with Cleveland since 2003 but is currently a free agent. He hit .228 in 66 games. His power numbers have dropped since 2006, when he hit 42 homers. He has battled injuries in recent years.
