His record is 100-102 with 4.65 ERA and has 1,195 strikeouts.

The Cleveland Indians have found a pitcher who could fill the void in their starting staff to replace Fausto Carmona, who is on baseball’s restricted list as he faces false identity charges in the Dominican Republic.

The Tribe has signed free agent pitcher Jon Garland to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old Garland went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in with 9 starts for the Dodgers last season.

He won 14 games for the Padres in 2010.

The right-hander has won at least 12 games seven times and had two 18-win seasons as the ace of the Chicago White Sox.

Garland has also pitched for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Arizona. He has pitched twice for the Dodgers.

His career totals includes a 132-119 won-loss record, 4.32 ERA with 1,124 strikeouts.

Garland, who had shoulder surgery last July, will be in Goodyear, Arizona next week to take a physical. If he passes all the tests, he’ll officially sign the Indians’ contract and will have a chance to make the team’s starting rotation.

Reds acquire backup SS Valdez in trade with Phillies


The Cincinnati Reds have always known that Wilson Valdez is a smooth-fielding shortstop but they also found out that he could pitch a little bit as well.

On May 25, 2011 at Philadelphia, the Reds lost 5-4 in 19 innings to the Phillies, Valdez was moved from second base to the pitcher’s mound by his manager Charlie Manuel. He went on to pitch a one-walk, scoreless 19th inning to get the win. Before that outing, he had never pitched in a professional game.

The win by Valdez was the first for a position player in the Major Leagues since Colorado Rockies catcher Brent Mayne beat the Atlanta Braves on August 22, 2000. The last player to start a game in the field and earn a win was Babe Ruth for the New York Yankees on October 1, 1921.

The Reds now have the 33-year-old Valdez on their side.

On Wednesday, he was acquired in a trade by Cincinnati with the Phillies getting lefty reliever Jeremy Horst.

Valdez has played in 342 career games in the big leagues with the White Sox, Seattle, San Diego, the Dodgers and Phillies and has played 190 at shortstop and has a .980 fielding percentage.

The past two seasons with Philadelphia, the Dominican Republic native batted .249 with one homer and 30 RBI’s and has the nack for coming up with clutch hits in his career.

The Reds outrighted Horst off of their roster on December 5, had a 2.93 ERA in 12 major league games in several stints with the team in 2011.
