Tigers signed OF Jerad Head to a minor league contract.

Indians sent OF Jerad Head outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Head, 28, posted a solid .864 OPS and 24 home runs in 114 games at the Triple-A level this season, earning a couple of promotions to the major leagues. But he won't have a major league roster spot to open 2012.

Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerad Head from Triple-A Columbus.

The Tribe wanted another body for the outfield after Trevor Crowe went down with a shoulder injury. Head went 2-for-23 (.087) at the plate earlier this season with the Indians and doesn't figure to see much playing time over the final few games.

Indians designated OF Jerad Head for assignment.

Jerad Head went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the loss to the Athletics on Thursday.

The Indians opted to keep Head around for a longer look when they needed a roster spot earlier this week. So far, he's gone 1-for-15 with four strikeouts and no walks. He's already 28, so this is probably going to be his only chance to capitalize on a major league opportunity. It needs to happen soon.

Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerad Head from Triple-A Columbus.

Head, 27, was having a nice year at Columbus, batting .284/.338/.526 with 24 homers and 70 RBI over 422 at-bats. He's capable of playing all over the diamond but will be used as outfield depth for the injury-riddled Tribe.
