CLEVELAND (AP) - Bryan LaHair and the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old first baseman and outfielder hit .230 with 16 homers and 57 RBIs last year for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of Japan’s Pacific League. He was released on Jan. 23.

LaHair was an NL All-Star in 2012, when he batted .269 with 16 homers and 40 RBIs for the Chicago Cubs. He has 21 homers in three big league seasons with Seattle and the Cubs.

LaHair’s agreement was announced Wednesday and includes an invitation to major league spring training.
