Death. Taxes. The Indians signing Michael Martinez to a minor league deal. They did it again over the weekend, giving the 35-year-old utilityman an invitation to spring training.

The Indians first signed him in 2015, sent him to the Red Sox in 2016 and then brought him back a month later on waivers. They traded him to the Rays earlier this year and then brought him back again after he was waived in late June. They just can’t quit one another, I suppose.
