Tribe signs two outfielders to minor-league contracts

By Sheldon Ocker Published: November 19, 2012

   The Indians today signed two free agent outfielders to minor-league contracts that include non-roster invitations to big-league spring training camp.

   Matt Carson, 31, spent most of the past season with Rochester, the Triple-A affiliate of   the Twins and batted .282 with 28 doubles, 14 home runs and 53 RBI in 115games. He also was summoned to Minnesota twice -- in August and September -- and batted .227 in 26 games. Carson was chosen in the fifth round of the 2002 draft by the Yankees and has appeared in 72 major-league games with the Twins and Athletics.

 
   Cedric Hunter, 24, batted .268 with 19 doubles, five home runs and 44 RBI in 129 games at Memphis, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cardinals. He was a third-round pick of the Padres in 2006 and played in six games with San Diego in 2011. In 2007, Baseball America rated him the No. 1 prospect of the Padres, who released him last spring. He was claimed by Oakland before being traded to the Cardinals in April.
