The Cleveland Indians announced today that they have signed right-handed pitcher Doug Mathis to a free agent minor league contract with a non-roster invitation to Major League spring training camp in Goodyear, AZ.

Mathis, 27, split the 2010 season between the AL Champion Texas Rangers and the Triple-A Oklahoma City Redhawks in his sixth season in the Texas organization. He went 1-1 with a 6.04 ERA in 13 Major League relief appearances (22.1 IP, 30 H, 15 ER, 11 BB, 10 K) over two stints in Texas. His numbers are greatly affected by a disastrous outing on May 14th at Toronto where in 1.1 innings he allowed 8 earned runs and 7 hits. He recently pitched for Este in the Dominican Winter League where he went 2-1 with a 3.29 ERA in 7 games (4 GS, 27.1 IP, 33 H, 10 ER).

The University of Missouri product was the 13th round selection of the Rangers in the 2005 draft. He has made big league appearances with Texas in each of the last three seasons since 2008 and owns a career record of 3-3 with a 4.84 ERA in 45 games (6 starts), and in 87.1 innings has allowed 106 hits, 47 earned runs, 35 walks, and has 44 strikeouts. In 2009 with Texas he posted an ERA of 2.14 (33.2 IP, 26 H, 8 ER, 21 K, .218 AVG) in 22 relief appearances. His career minor league record is 39-34 with a 4.08 ERA in 111 games (104 GS, 593.1 IP, 652 H, 269 ER) over six seasons since 2005.
