Indians get their man

The Cleveland Indians hired Manny Acta to be their manager, giving him the job about three months after he was fired by the Washington Nationals. Acta signed a three-year contract with a club option for 2013, Indians spokesman Bart Swain said Sunday. Additional terms were not disclosed. The Indians chose Acta after a second interview over former New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine and Indians triple-A manager Torey Lovullo. The team had been expected to interview Dodgers hitting coach Don Mattingly this week. Cleveland tied for last in the AL Central after coming into this season with high expectations. The Indians fired manager Eric Wedge in the final week of the season. Acta went 158-252 in 2 1/2 years with the Nationals, who fired him after a 21-61 start this season.
