Sources close to the situation confirmed to Fox 8 News that free agent reliever John Axford agreed to terms with the Cleveland Indians.

A physical mid-week will officially seal the deal.

Axford had 46 saves in 2011 in Milwaukee but lost his closer role in 2013 and was traded to St. Louis.

The Indians considered using either Bryan Shaw or Cody Allen in the closer’s role but opted to look for a veteran to handle those duties.
