Baseball vet and ex-Tampa Bay member Johnny Damon has officially signed a deal with the Cleveland Indians, a move that some see as an attempt to boost their numbers as well as help a weak offense. With a .176 batting average, the Indians are the worst team in the MLB right now.

Though the details of the contract haven't yet been disclosed, it reportedly has a full no-trade clause, but will allow him to opt out upon the return of outfielder Grady Sizemore, who is out due to a back injury.

Damon hasn't been in spring training at all, so the word is that he'll have to take some time to prepare before he's ready to start a full season.

Are we able to trade Johnny Damon for Johnny Damon 12 years ago? #tribe(image) 6 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

I'm all for Johnny Damon. I just hope there is a clause in his contract that he has to come back when Sizemore gets re-injured.(image) 4 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

How much will Johnny Damon really help us? As soon as Grady comes back, Damon gets to leave. That's in June. I hope I'm wrong. #Indians(image) 6 minutes ago via Twitter for Android ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
