Indians Sign Andy LaRoche to Minor League Deal

by @ 5:55 pm. Filed under 2012 Indians

The Indians signed infielder Andy LaRoche to a minor league with an invitation to spring training.  I also like these moves because adding guys with a little potential always makes spring training interesting.  Once a top prospect in the Dodgers organization, LaRoche never panned out and now he’s 28.    He had one decent year at Pittsburgh but outside of that, he’s been mostly used as a part timer.  Last year he had a .654 OPS in 104 plate appearances and he didn’t have a single home run.

Jason Donald is LaRoche’s primary competition because he plays a lot of the same spots as the Indians utility infielder. Still, having a guy like LaRoche at Triple-A can be nice because he can fill in for a few different spots if someone goes down.
