Free agent Hanley Ramirez has signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians, who look to add some power to their lineup.

Ramirez, 35, passed his physical and reported to camp on Tuesday.

Ramirez has 269 homers in his career but played in just 44 games with Boston last season before he was released. Ramirez is the only active player in the MLB with at least 250 career homers and 250 stolen bases and one of just seven with more than 250 homers and 1,000 runs.

 

The Indians need some power hitters after Michael Brantley left as a free agent and Edwin Encarnacion and Yonder Alonso were both traded.

A three-time All-Star, Ramirez was voted NL Rookie of the Year in 2006 with Florida.
