Veteran outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has been promoted by the Cleveland Indians and will make his season debut Sunday against the Kansas City Royals.

Gonzalez, who started this season at Triple-A Columbus, will play left field and bat third in Cleveland’s lineup against Kansas City right-hander Jakob Junis.

The Indians signed Gonzalez last month to a minor league contract that could pay him up to $3 million depending on bonuses and how much time he spends on Cleveland’s 40-man roster.

Gonzalez, 33, spent the first 11 seasons of his career with the Colorado Rockies. The three-time All-Star batted .276 with 16 home runs in 132 games with Colorado last season.

To make room for Gonzalez on the 40-man roster, the Indians optioned right-hander Jefry Rodriguez to Columbus and transferred star pitcher Mike Clevinger to the 60-day injured list.
