Wednesday December 16th, 2015

The Cleveland Indians and outfielder Rajai Davis have agreed to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal is believed to be worth $5.25 million, with added incentives.

In 112 games with the Tigers last season, Davis posted a .764 OPS—his highest since the 2009 season—to go along with eight home runs, 30 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.

Davis, 35, started his career with the Pirates in 2005 before spending time with the Giants, Athletics and Blue Jays.

He will provide the Indians with depth in the outfield as Michael Brantley recovers from off-season shoulder surgery.
