Reports: 1B Alonso agrees to 2-year deal with Indians

Dec 21, 2017 - 3:17 PM The Cleveland Indians and free-agent infielder Yonder Alonso agreed to a two-year, $16 million contract, multiple outlets reported.

The deal, pending a physical, also includes an $8 million vesting option for 2020.

Alonso will take over at first base in Cleveland for Carlos Santana, who finalized a three-year, $60 million agreement with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Alonso batted .266 with a career-high 28 homers and 67 RBIs in 142 games split between the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners last season. He also scored 72 times and had an OPS of .866 en route to being named an All-Star for the first time in his career.
