Nick Hagadone Placed On Minor League Disqualified List After Self-Inflicted Injury

This past weekend was a collection of unfortunate events for Cleveland Indians left-handed pitcher Nick Hagadone. Shortly after a poor outing on Friday night, Hagadone punched an object with his pitching hand, resulting in a severe injury.

The next day, he was demoted to the minors and the day after that he found out that he may be done for the season, which forced the Indians to place him on the minor league disqualified list.

Worst of all, he won't be paid while he is on the disqualified list.

Via The Chronicle Telegram:

"We're certainly disappointed with the reaction to it," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said. "He was certainly very frustrated coming out of the game. We certainly wish he would have handled it a little differently."

Hagadone was 0-1 with a 6.39 ERA in 27 games with the Indians this season.
