Cleveland Indians Baseball - Cleveland, Ohio.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) – Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona says reliever Joba Chamberlain has made the team as a non-roster invitee.

Chamberlain signed with the Indians on Dec. 1. Francona said Saturday that the right-handed pitcher will be “a real valuable piece.”

In eight innings this spring, Chamberlain has given up seven hits and three runs. He walked five and struck out seven and has an ERA of 3.38.

Chamberlain spent last season with Detroit, Toronto and Kansas City. The 30-year-old has a 25-21 career record with a 3.87 ERA. He has seven saves in 365 appearances over nine seasons.

Cleveland informed left-handed pitcher Tom Gorzelanny that he wouldn’t make the team. Gorzelanny signed a minor league contract in December.
