The Cleveland Indians had a busy weekend, adding two MLB veterans on minor league deals before reporting to camp. Jason Giambi was in the running to become the next manager for the Colorado Rockies earlier this winter, but after he lost out to Walt Weiss, he decided he wanted to continue his playing career, which he will have the chance to do with the Indians, and he'll make $750K if he makes the Big League roster.
