Indians sign C Anthony Recker to minors deal
Earlier this month, Anthony Recker declared free agency after he was removed from the 40-man roster and refused a minor league assignment.
And it would appear Recker will be playing elsewhere in 2016.
Recker has signed a minor league deal with the Indians, and will be invited to Major League Spring Training in 2016, the club announced on Friday.
Recker, 32, hit .125 with two homers and five RBIs in 80 at-bats in the major leagues in 2015. He hit .190/.256/.350 in 140 games with the Mets from 2013-2015.
He was left off the postseason roster for Kevin Plawecki this past October.
