The Indians have officially signed outfielder Johnny Damon.

The 38-year-old reached agreement with the Indians last week on a one-year, $1.2 million pending a physical. Damon, who needs 277 hits to reach 3,000 for his career, is at the Indians complex in Goodyear, Ariz., preparing to join the Indians. Damon can earn another $1.4 million in performance bonuses.

The Indians are the fourth team in four years for Damon, who played in 150 games for the Tampa Bay Rays last season. Damon has played at least 140 games in 16 consecutive seasons.
