The Indians signed a two-year Player Development Contract (PDC) extension with the 2010 International League champion Columbus Clippers, an agreement that runs through the 2014 season.
The two-year extension was signed just two days after the Clippers captured the Triple-A Championship with a 12-6 victory over the Tacoma Rainiers Tuesday.
The Clippers compiled a regular season record of 79-65 (.549), winning the International League wild card before defeating Scranton and Durham for the I.L. title. In the team's 34 years, Columbus has won eight Governor’s Cups, the last coming in 1996.
2010 marked Columbus’ second year as an Indians affiliate after the two clubs originally signed a four-year contract prior to the 2009 season.
