Indians sign former Flyer Stammen


The Cleveland Indians on Monday signed former Dayton Flyers pitcher Craig Stammen to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

The Versailles native Stammen, 31, has pitched his entire career with the Washington Nationals. He began his career as a starting pitcher in 2009 and 2010 and has been a reliever since 2011.

Stammen has a 3.91 ERA in 229 games. He pitched in five games last season before tearing a flexor muscle in his throwing elbow and missing the rest of the season. He became a free agent after the season when he was not tendered a deal by the Nationals.
