"He's interesting," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "There's not a lot of effort, and the ball is coming out really nice. That's a good combination."
Cleveland rallied on a pair of three-run homers. Matt Carson connected off Erik Johnson in the fourth for his third home run of the exhibition season, and Mike McDade went deep against loser Leyson Septimo in the sixth.
"Matt has 60 at-bats last year with Minnesota and he's a strong kid," Francona said. "He can play all three outfield positions, probably on the corners more than center."
David Huff won despite giving up Marcus Semien's three-run homer in the sixth.
NOTES: Indians All-Star closer Chris Perez could be sidelined one month because of a strained shoulder. ... Cleveland also said RHP Frank Hermann sprained a ligament in his pitching elbow on Monday against Oakland.
