CLEVELAND (AP) - Pitcher Tommy Hunter and the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a one-year contract.

A 29-year-old right-hander, Hunter was 4-2 with a 4.18 ERA in 58 relief appearances for Baltimore and the Chicago Cubs, who acquired him on July 31 for outfielder Junior Lake.

Primarily a starter from 2008-12, Hunter has pitched out of the bullpen for the past three seasons. He has a 46-33 career record with a 4.31 ERA in 75 starts and 209 relief appearances for Texas (2008-11), Baltimore (2011-15) and the Cubs.

To clear a roster spot, Cleveland designated catcher Tony Wolters for assignment.

Cleveland also agreed to a minor league contract with catcher Guillermo Quiroz, who will attend big league spring training. The 34-year-old has played in 148 big league games from 2004-14. He hit .247 (22 for 89) last year in 27 games for San Francisco’s Triple-A team in Sacramento.
