CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have signed Joe Martinez and Brian Jeroloman to minor league contracts.

Martinez, 29, a right-handed pitcher, made one relief appearance for the Arizona Diamondbacks in April, and has 19 appearances in the major leagues since 2009. He is 3-3 for his career, with a 6.22 ERA and 29 strikeouts.

Jeroloman, 27, was limited to 43 games last season in the minor leagues due to a right knee injury. He was a 2006 sixth-round selection by the Toronto Blue Jays after a career at the University of Florida.
