The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has agreed to terms with SS JOHNNY PERALTA on a one-year Major League contract for the 2006 season.

Peralta, 23, hit .292 (147-504) in 2005 with 35 doubles, 4 triples, 24 homers and 78 RBI in 141 games. His 24 home runs set a Cleveland Indians single-season franchise record for home runs by a shortstop, breaking Woodie Held's previous club record of 23 in 1961. His .521 slugging % ranked 2nd among AL shortstops and was also the 2nd highest total in franchise history behind Lou Boudreau's 1948 MVP mark of .534. Last season was Peralta's first full season in the big leagues.
