Veterans Guzman, Lewis cut by Indians
GOODYEAR, Ariz.—Veteran infielder 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.
