Cloyd was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday. A non-roster invitee to major league camp, he gave up two runs on four hits (including a homer) in 3.1 Grapefruit League innings. Cloyd has not pitched in the majors since 2013, when he posted a 6.56 ERA in 60.1 innings with Philadelphia, and spent last year in the KBO.

He'll likely head back to the minors once the spring concludes, though.
Cloyd signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Floyd spent last year in Korea, going 11-11 with a 5.19 ERA in 28 starts. It'll be tough for the 28-year-old to make the Yankees rotation, so he'll likely serve as organizational depth.
The Indians announced Tuesday they signed pitcher Michael Roth to a minor-league contract, which includes an invite to major-league spring training. The Indians also announced pitcher Tyler Cloyd was released to pursue an opportunity in Korea.
