The Cleveland Indians reinstated Nick Hagadone to the 40-man roster, and designated Rafael Perez for assignment.
Hagadone earned a promotion to Cleveland this year, and pitched poorly. In 25 and 1/3 innings, Hagadone gave up 18 runs on 26 hits, while walking 15 and striking out 26.
Hagadone was originally drafted by the Boston Red Sox with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft, and was acquired by the Indians in 2009, when the team dealt Victor Martinez to the Red Sox.
Perez pitched just 7 and 2/3 innings for the Indians this season, before being placed on the disabled list on April 26. Perez did not pitch again for the Indians in 2012. This may be the end for Perez's career with Cleveland.
Perez would have been arbitration-eligible had the Indians kept the left-hander on the 40-man roster.
