CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have signed free agent reliever Joba Chamberlain to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

Chamberlain spent last season with Detroit, Toronto and Kansas City. The 30-year-old pitcher has a 25-21 career record with a 3.87 ERA. He has seven saves in 365 appearances over nine seasons.

He debuted with the New York Yankees in 2007, when he pitched against the Indians in the AL playoffs. Chamberlain pitched in Game 2 at Cleveland, best remembered for the night small bugs called midges infested the playing field.

Chamberlain was the 41st overall pick in the 2006 draft. He spent seven seasons with the Yankees, used primarily as a set-up man for closer Mariano Rivera.
