Indians Ink Outfielder Rajai Davis to a Minor-League Deal

He was the hero that nearly sent the Indians to their first World Series since 1948 when he hit a two-run homer that sent Progressive Field into a frenzy in the 8th inning of game seven of the World Series in 2016 against the Cubs.

Now, it appears he’s back with the Tribe trying to recreate the magic that he had two seasons ago.

According to reports, the Indians have agreed to a minor-league deal with outfielder Rajai Davis, a player who two seasons ago was a spark plug and a solid voice in the locker room for the Indians.

In 2016 he lead the American League with 43 steals, hitting .249 with 12 homers and 48 runs batted in. No homer in Indians history though was as the dramatic as the one in game seven against the Cubs.

Last season he hit .235 with five homers and 20 RBIs with 29 steals with the A’s and Red Sox. Now he’ll try to make it back to the Tribe again, hoping to catch the magic he had two seasons ago.
