The Cleveland Indians entered the offseason searching for a right-handed power hitter to bolster their lineup. After striking out at last week's winter meetings, they may have finally connected.
The Indians have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent slugger Mark Reynolds, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending a physical.
Reynolds would likely take over at first base for Cleveland, but he also could be used as the designated hitter.
