Marcum tossed three shutout innings against the Royals on Monday. He allowed two hits and struck out two.

Marcum is a darkhorse candidate to open the season as a member of the starting rotation but an opt out clause in his contract might tilt things in his favor if the Indians like what they see this spring. T.J. House appears to have the inside track on the fourth spot which would leave Marcum fighting with Danny Salazar, Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin and Bruce Chen for the last spot.

Marcum signed a minor league deal with the Indians on Tuesday, which includes a spring training invitation, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Marcum did not appear in a major league game last season after inking a minor league deal with the Indians in December. A neck issue limited his ability to pitch, and he was shut down from mid-May until early-August. Marcum was able to make nine minor league appearances - mostly at Triple-A Columbus - in which he posted a 2.08 EAR over 17.1 total innings. The 32-year-old will look to remain healthy in 2015 as he attempts to redeem himself in the big leagues after going 1-10 with a 5.29 ERA for the Mets in 2013.
