The Cleveland Indians are talking with outfielder Mike Cameron and infielder Andy LaRoche, both for potential minor league deals, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com. Bastian adds that the tribe is still looking for relievers, too:
- Twitter / @MLBastian - "Indians' focus remains on adding a bat, but team not ruling out pitching. Wouldn't be surprised to see reliever added to mix before spring."
- Twitter / @MLBastian - "Can confirm Cleveland P-D report noting that Indians have had talks with OF Mike Cameron & INF Andy LaRoche. Would be Minor League deals."

"MLB.com can confirm a Cleveland Plain Dealer report indicating that the Indians are in talks with free-agent outfielder Mike Cameron and free-agent infielder Andy LaRoche. Both players would be brought into the fold on Minor League contracts that include non-roster invites to attend Spring Training with the big league club."

"The reason for the additions of Felix Pie and Aaron Cunningham is the Tribe's lack of outfield depth at Class AAA. It's possible Cunningham can make the big-league roster -- he is out of minor-league options. He has 1,156 Class AAA plate appearances, hitting .304 (.869 OPS) with 32 homers. He is mostly a doubles guy, and a right-handed hitter who is good with the glove in right and left field. The Tribe likes that he has a .906 OPS against lefties in his minor-league career."
