The Cleveland Indians have added another player to their Spring Training invitees list.

The Tribe has signed lefty Chris Seddon to a minor-league contract with a training camp invitation.

The 28-year-old is one of eight players signed to minor-league deals and invited to camp.

Seddon has pitched for Florida and Seattle in the majors.

In 2011, Seddon pitched for Triple-A Tacoma, the Seattle Mariners top farm club and went 9-7 with a 6.27 ERA. He made 28 appearances and 25 starts.

The Cincinnati Reds have announced that they’ve hired former major league manager Jim Riggleman to lead their new Double-A affiliate in Pensacola.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos will play in the Southern League.

The new job will be Riggleman’s first in the dugout since his stunning decision to abruptly resign last June as the manager of the Washington Nationals over his contract situation when the team was in a hot streak, winning 11 of 12 games.

After leaving Washington, Riggleman worked as a scout for the San Francisco Giants.

Riggleman and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have worked together before. Riggleman was the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League field coordinator while Jocketty was the team’s GM.

Riggleman, who is 59, has also managed the Padres, Cubs and Mariners.

It seems as if Major League Baseball has told businessman Jim Crane it would not approve his purchase of the Houston Astros unless he agrees to move the team to the American League.

Crane reportedly agreed to the move in exchange for a drop in the sales price, which was valued at $680 million.

The Astros currently are a member of the six-team National League Central Division. The AL West is the only division in the major leagues with four teams, Angels, Athletics, Mariners and Rangers.

The Astros would be in a division with their in-state rivals, the Texas Rangers.

With the 2012 MLB schedule all set, the earliest the Astros could move to the American League would be in 2013.

The International League has named Norfolk outfielder Nick Green as the Batter of the Week for the period July 4-10.

Green has won the award before, August 25-September 1, 2008 while a member of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Green led the IL with four home runs and 11 RBI’s for the week, having his best games on Tuesday and Friday.

He had a three-hit, two-homer, seven-RBI performance on Friday at Durham to help the Tides to a 17-2 blasting of the Bulls. In the game, Green achieved season-highs in hits, homers and RBI’s.

The 32-year-old Green is in his twelfth season of pro baseball. He is a veteran of around 400 games in the majors with Atlanta, Tampa Bay, the Yankees, Mariners, Red Sox, Dodgers and Blue Jays.

Hafner provides last at-bat magic in Cleveland win

Travis Hafner is one of the few veterans left on a relatively young Indians team. He is definitely one of its leaders.

Hafner was the hero Friday night as he belted a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Seattle closer Brandon League gave the Cleveland Indians another dramatic win, 5-4 victory over the Mariners.

Hafner, who was in a homer drought since April 17, hit an o-1 pitch from League (0-4) over the center-field fence, sending the crowd of 33,774 home happy.

The victory was the Indians’ ninth last at-bat win.

Tony Sipp (2-0) pitched a perfect 1.1 innings to earn the win.

The loss spoiled the homecoming of Seattle manager Eric Wedge in Cleveland.

Shin-Soo Choo and Michael Brantley also homered for the Indians.
