Indians sign Marcum to minor league deal

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Cleveland Indians signed pitcher Shaun Marcum to a minor league contract on Tuesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the pact includes an invitation to spring training.

Marcum joined the Indians last December after undergoing surgery in July 2013 for thoracic outlet syndrome, an injury that affects the shoulder and neck. He appeared in only eight games at Triple-A Columbus last August after recovering from the procedure.

The 32-year-old right-hander last pitched in the majors with the New York Mets in 2013 and posted a 1-10 record with a 5.29 ERA in 14 games, 12 of which were starts.

In 188 games over nine seasons with Toronto, Milwaukee and the Mets, Marcum owns a career record of 58-46 with a 3.88 ERA.

The Indians also signed 30-year-old right-hander Dustin Molleken to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.
