UPDATE: It’s a done deal. Spilborghs gets a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Spilborghs was productive in a part-time role for the Rockies from 2006-2010, hitting .281 with a .794 OPS while averaging 308 plate appearances per season, but batted just .210 with a career-low .588 OPS last season and is now 32 years old.
Cleveland has been looking for right-handed-hitting outfield depth to pair with their left-handed-hitting starters Shin-Soo Choo, Grady Sizemore, and Michael Brantley, so Spilborghs would make sense in a bench role.
