CLEVELAND -- The Indians have reinstated left-hander Nick Hagadone to the 40-man roster and designated lefty Rafael Perez for assignment.

Hagadone appeared in 27 games before his season ended when he lost his temper and broke his left arm after a bad outing against Boston on July 6. The Indians optioned him to the minors and placed him on the suspended list. He filed a grievance against the club to recoup salary. The complaint remains active.

Perez pitched in just eight games last season. He underwent shoulder surgery in September. The Indians had planned to designate him Friday, when they must offer arbitration eligible players contracts for next season. The Indians have seven players eligible: Shin-Soo Choo, Chris Perez, Justin Masterson, Joe Smith, Jack Hannahan, Tony Sipp and Lou Marson.

The Indians have 10 days to trade, release or put Perez on waivers. He pitched in at least 70 games three times for Cleveland.
