    GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have signed free agent Rajai Davis to a minor league contract, bringing back the speedy outfielder who hit one of the biggest home runs in team history.

    The Indians announced the deal with the 37-year-old Davis on Saturday.

    Davis led the American League with 43 stolen bases for Cleveland in 2016. In Game 7 of the World Series, he hit a tying, two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning off Aroldis Chapman before the Indians lost in the 10th to the Chicago Cubs.

    Davis signed with Oakland as a free agent before last year and was traded in midseason to Boston. He hit a combined .235 with stole 29 bases.

    In 10 major league seasons, he has batted .264 with 394 career steals.
