The Indians have signed 30-year old righty starter/reliever Fernando Nieve to a minor league deal. Nieve pitched in 25 games (24 starts) in AAA-ball for the Mets last year and he was 7-9 with a 5.96 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2010 with the Mets. Nieve has pitched in 99 games (19 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 8-11 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Nieve will get a shot to win a job on the Tribe’s pitching staff next spring.
