The Indians have agreed to a minor-league deal with Jon Garland.
If he passes a physical next week, Garland, who had shoulder surgery last July, should have a shot to make the rotation this spring.
Garland was 1-5 last season with a 4.33 ERA in 9 starts for the Dodgers. In 2010, he won 14 games for San Diego. He also has won 18 games twice in his career with the White Sox.
