Indians sign 12 to one-year contracts

- Associated Press - Friday, March 9, 2012

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (AP) - Starting second baseman Jason Kipnis and veterans Lou Marson and Shelley Duncan are among 12 players signed to one-year contracts for 2012 by the Cleveland Indians on Friday.

Every player on Cleveland's 40-man roster is now under contract.

Also signed were right-handers Vinnie Pestano, Frank Herrmann, Zach McAllister, left-handers Nick Hagadone and Scott Barnes, outfielder Ezequiel Carrera and infielders Lonnie Chisenhall, Russ Canzler and Juan Diaz.

Kipnis quickly made his mark in Cleveland as a rookie last year, hitting .272 with seven home runs in 36 games. A second-round pick in 2009 as an outfielder from Arizona State, he was moved to second base in the minors.
