[January 15, 2009]  CLEVELAND (AP) -- Free agent pitchers Kirk Saarloos and Greg Aquino agreed Wednesday to minor league contracts with the Cleveland Indians and were invited spring training.

RestaurantSaarloos has a 29-30 career record with Houston, Cincinnati and Oakland. He spent most of last season at Triple-A Sacramento, going 9-4 with a 4.22 ERA in 22 starts. The 29-year-old pitcher also went 1-0 with a 5.47 ERA in eight games for the Athletics.

On Sept. 19, Saarloos struck out a career-high 11 against the Indians.

Aquino has made 135 relief appearances over five years with Arizona, Milwaukee and Baltimore. A converted infielder, he made nine appearances last season for the Orioles and missed a long stretch of the season because of a strained hamstring.
