The Indians announced Wednesday evening that they have come to an agreement with right-hander Cody Anderson for the 2019 season, avoiding arbitration.

As per a report by MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, the deal would be available for $641,250.

Anderson, 28, has missed the last two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his knee in March 20 17. In 2015, the righty started 15 matches and went 7-3 with a 3.05 ERA at 91 1/3 innings.

After his very long stretch apart from the Major Leagues, Anderson could spend some time at Cleveland’s bullpen at 2019. At the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas a week, even Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said a focus this offseason would be adding into the bullpen, however the team could use some players coming from injuries to fulfill that function.

“It is definitely among the set of things we’d love to perform,” Antonetti said regarding strengthening the bullpen. “In the exact same timewe feel that people have quite a few alternatives that are coming straight back which we expect will be better than that which they were at 2018 or, sometimes, guys returning from injuries that weren’t readily available to us at 2018. We’ve tell you that listing of guys. Everybody from Cody Anderson into Nick Goody, Danny Salazar, there is various different guys that could fill that role.”
