CLEVELAND, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- The Cleveland Indians Wednesday re-structured the contract of third baseman Aaron Boone.
After the re-structuring, the Indians decided to bring Boone back for the 2006 season. His new deal, according to Cleveland's Web site, allows either party a signing option for 2007.
The seven-year veteran is batting .226 with 13 doubles, 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 92 games -- and has batted .290 in 18 games since the All-Star break.
Boone, who also has played for the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees, has committed 10 errors in chances.
Boone sat out the entire 2004 season, after injuring his left knee while playing basketball in the off-season following the 2003 campaign.
