The Indians have signed left-handed reliever Mike Zagurski to a minor league deal with an invite to major league spring training.

Zagurski, 31, spent 2013 with the Pirates, Yankees, and Athletics, and racked up a 17.05 ERA in only 6.1 innings of work (11 H, 12 R/ER, 8 BB, 5 K).  He made 45 appearances in Triple-A and was much better as he went 6-3 with a 3.04 ERA (53.1 IP, 44 H, 24 BB, 83 K).

Zagurski is a large sized, bad bodied lefty standing in at 6-feet and 240 pounds. He is inconsistent with his command, but he has some swing and miss stuff with a low 90s fastball that can reach 95 MPH and a solid slider. He's a depth signing to add more options for left-handed relief in the event injuries crop up this spring or others struggle to perform.
