Welcome to Clevelinks, a new feature recapping the previous day or weekend’s Indians news and Wahoo’s on First commentary, as well as the best Tribe analysis from other sites.

Indians News

  • The New York Yankees agreed to sign Travis Hafner. It’s reportedly a one-year deal with a $2 million base salary and performance incentives.
  • Another former Indian found a new home Thursday: Ryan Garko. The Tribe’s third-round pick in the 2003 amateur draft, Garko hit .283/.355/.450 in parts of five seasons with Cleveland before he was traded to the Giants for Scott Barnes in 2009.
  • Cleveland announced the signing of reliever Matt Capps to a minor-league deal. Capps, 29, has a 3.52 ERA and 138 saves in his eight-year MLB career but struggled with injuries in 2012.
  • Counting down the days until baseball starts again? Good news: the Indians’ equipment trucks left for Arizona Thursday.
