The Indians signed infielder Luis Hernandez to a minor-league contract and re-signed right-hander Hector Rondon.
Both deals include invitations to spring training.
Hernandez, 28, spent most of 2012 with the Texas Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate. He batted .262 with eight homers and 70 RBI in 129 games.
He played 113 games at shortstop and 15 at second base. A switch-hitter, Hernandez appeared in two games for the Rangers when Michael Young went on paternity leave.
Rondon’s career has been slowed by two elbow surgeries.
He is 36-36 with a 3.88 ERA in 120 minor-league games.
Once considered one of the top prospects in the Indians’ system, Rondon has been limited to just 41⅔ innings in the past three seasons.
He is pitching this winter in Venezuela.
