GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Rajai Davis made it all the way back with the Cleveland Indians. Mike Napoli remains on the outside.

Davis, who hit perhaps the most memorable home run in club history during the 2016 World Series, was told Thursday by manager Terry Francona that he will be on Cleveland's opening-day roster. The 37-year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract with the club last month.

With Michael Brantley and Brandon Guyer still not at 100 percent while recovering from surgeries, the Indians needed depth. Davis has filled a need and the Indians are thrilled to have him around.
