WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - The Cleveland Indians signed nine players to one-year deals today, including third baseman Andy Marte, who is expected to be the team's starting third baseman.

They also reached agreements with catcher Kelly Shoppach, infielder Joe Inglett, left-hander Juan Lara, right-handers Fernando Cabrera and Edward Mujica and outfielders Ben Francisco, Shin-Soo Choo and Franklin Gutierrez.

Shoppach is the backup for starting catcher Victor Martinez and Inglett is battling for the utility infielder's job. Choo, Gutierrez, Francisco, Mujica and Lara are expected to begin the season at Triple-A Buffalo.
