The Indians have acquired veteran reserve infielder Jamey Carroll from the Rockies for a player to be named later. The 33-year old had his worst season of his major league career in 2007 with the Rockies. He played in 108 games last season and he was 51 for 227 (.225 avg, .617 OPS) with 45 runs scored, 2 homers, 22 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Carroll has now played in 580 games in his major league career and he is 410 for 1,509 (.272 avg, .703 OPS) with 256 runs scored, 9 homers, 112 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. This move likely means that Josh Barfield will either start the year in the minors or get traded by the Indians before the season starts.

The Indians have signed catcher Yamid Haad and pitchers Rick Bauer and Jeff Harris to minor league contracts. Yamid Haad is a 30-year old catcher who last played in the majors in 2005 with the Giants. He ha now played in 18 games in his major league career and he is 2 for 29 (.069 avg, .255 OPS) with 1 RBI. He will likely serve as the Akron Aeros catcher as the Tribe likes to have experienced catchers at this level. Rick Bauer last pitched in the majors in 2006 for the Rangers. The 30-year old righty has been a decent pitcher in his career to date. He has pitched in 183 games (10 starts) in his major league career and he is 11-14 with 3 saves, a 4.34 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. He will have a decent shot of making the Indians next season. 33-year old righty Jeff Harris last pitched in the majors in the 2006 season with the Mariners. Harris has now pitched in 14 games (8 starts) in his major league career and he is 2-5 with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.
