Per @MLBTransactions on Twitter:
“CLEVELAND INDIANS: Agreed to terms with OF Johnny Damon on a minor league contract.”
The IronPigs won’t face the Columbus Clippers (Cleveland’s AAA team/2 time reigning IL Champs) at home until July 20th.
It’s a possibility we may see Johnny Damon at Coca Cola Park.. but I don’t think it’s a good chance. He’s most likely looking for a door to a big league job and if he doesn’t get it by July 20th he will probably seek it else where.
In other news, the IronPigs are offering a special deal for the April 26th game.
More than three decades after being collectively dealt to the Chicago Cubs for shortstop Ivan DeJesus, Ryne Sandberg and Larry Bowa will reconvene at Coca-Cola Park on Thursday, April 26 when the IronPigs host the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees at 7:05 p.m. For this game only, a special ticket deal is available for fans that purchase their seats online and enter the unique promo code available only on the IronPigs’ Facebook (www.facebook.com/lhvironpigs) or Twitter (www.twitter.com/ironpigs) pages.
