The Cleveland Indians have added veteran outfielder Johnny Damon to their 25-man roster, a couple weeks after signing him to a minor-league contract. Damon, 38, will likely debut for the Indians on Wednesday, as they face off against the Chicago White Sox. Damon's deal has a base salary of $1.25M, with up to $1.4M in incentives.

In order to make room for Damon on their 40-man roster, the Indians designated infielder Jose Lopez for assignment.

    "Two weeks after signing a Minor League contract with the Tribe, the 38-year-old Damon was in uniform -- he will wear No. 33 -- but on the bench for Tuesday's game against the White Sox. The veteran outfielder has been training at the Indians' complex in Goodyear, Ariz., but he will now be thrown into the mix mainly as a left fielder for the big league club."
