CLEVELAND -- The Indians have signed utilityman Ryan Raburn to a two-year contract extension with a club option for 2016.

Released by Detroit after last season, Raburn has had a major impact with the Indians, who signed him to a minor league free agent contract in January. Raburn is batting .277 with 13 homers and 38 RBIs in 66 games. The versatile Raburn has made starts in right field (37), left (seven), second base (two) and designated hitter (five).

He's batted .462 (12 of 26) with 19 RBIs with runners in scoring position and two outs.

Raburn was named the Tigers' starting second baseman before the 2012 season. However, he battled injuries, hit just .171 in 66 games and spent some time at Triple-A Toledo before the Tigers released him.
