Hagadone (elbow) agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Thursday. Hagadone will head to the Brewers after spending parts of the last five seasons with the Indians. He is recovering from a July procedure on his elbow, but will get a chance to show what he can do during spring training if he is healthy.
Hagadone (elbow) was designated for assignment by the Indians on Wednesday. The team acquired Collin Cowgill from the Angels for cash and bumped Hagadone, who struggled to a 4.28 ERA and 1.54 WHIP before undergoing a right elbow procedure in July. Considering Hagadone is likely out for the start of 2016, it seems likely he will go unclaimed on waivers and remain in the organization.
Indians southpaw reliever Nick Hagadone had left elbow surgery Thursday, per MLB.com. Terry Francona admitted that the procedure is "not typical." The 29-year-old Hagadone sustained the injury in a Class A rehab game. He had experienced Tommy John surgery in 2008. He is out for the season and is expected to require 6-9 months of recovery time. He ends his year with a 4.28 ERA and 30 hits allowed in 27 1/3 innings. He served as a primary short reliever early in the year before faltering.
Indians relief pitcher Nick Hagadone will meet with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his injured left elbow, per MLB.com. Hagadone suffered the injury during a Class A rehab outing on Wednesday, and the team is not optimistic about the status of his elbow. He underwent reconstructive Tommy John surgery once before in 2008.
The Indians are fearing the worst when it comes to relief pitcher Nick Hagadone and the injury he sustained to his left elbow during a Class A rehab outing on Wednesday, per MLB.com. Hagadone had the elbow examined after suffering the injury and is in the process of getting a second opinion. "He threw a pitch and felt it. He was examined and it's not good," manager Terry Francona said. "We'll have more when we have more, but he looks like he hurt it pretty good." Hagadone is no stranger to elbow injuries, he required reconstructive Tommy John surgery in 2008. "Let's let him go get his second opinion, which is important," Francona said. "And then we'll have more. But, this isn't something that's probably a week with no throwing. I think he hurt himself."
