The Cleveland Indians signed free agent right-handed pitcher David Aardsma on Thursday to a minor league contract with a non-roster invitation to spring training camp.

Aardsma, 32, spent most of the 2013 season in the New York Mets' bullpen, going 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in 43 relief appearances.

The Denver native stranded all 19 of the runners he inherited -- best ratio in the majors -- and allowed just one run over his final nine outings of the season.
