The Indians have signed outfielder Nyjer Morgan to a minor league deal, with an invitation to Spring Training. If he makes the roster and reaches some incentives, he can earn more than $1 million.
Morgan spent 2013 playing in Japan for the Yokohama DeNA BayStars, posting a batting line of .294/.361/.434 in 424 plate appearances. Prior to that he played for two years with the Milwaukee Brewers, putting up solid numbers in 2011 before falling apart at the plate in 2012:

He did play a solid centerfield in both of those seasons, so there's that.
Morgan also has an alter ego named Tony Plush. His Twitter account isn't really active anymore, but he used to post goofy pictures of himself and sometimes create fun videos like this semi-NSFW (language) one. I doubt he makes the team, but he's another live body, his presence increases the chances that we get some shenanigans from the Tribe in March, and he could become quite popular in Columbus.
