Veterans Guzman, Lewis cut by Indians

Published:

Veterans Guzman, Lewis cut by Indiansielder Cristian Guzman has been released by the Cleveland Indians, who also reassigned outfielder Fred Lewis to their minor league camp.

Both were non-roster invitees to camp and neither had a good spring. Guzman batted .217 with no extra-base hits in 10 games before straining a hamstring. Lewis hit .200 with one double in nine games. Neither drove in a run.

Guzman, 34, missed all of 2011 with a sore shoulder.

Cleveland still has 41 players in its major league camp.
