Delabar was released by the Indians on Wednesday. Delabar hasn't played this season after incurring an 80-game suspension for violating the MiLB drug program, and it's becoming increasingly unlikely he'll get a chance to throw a pitch this year. The 33-year-old reliever appeared in seven games for the Reds last season, racking up a 6.75 ERA in eight innings, before signing a minor-league contract with Cleveland in January.
Delabar was suspended 80 games for violating the MiLB Drug Prevention Program. Delabar hasn't appeared in a minor-league game this year due to the looming suspension. He also hasn't been an effective MLB reliever since 2013, so this isn't too much of a loss for the Indians.
Delabar signed a minor league deal with the Indians on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training. The 33-year-old righty has not been an effective big league reliever since 2013. He will offer organizational bullpen depth, likely starting the year at Triple-A.
Delabar was released Friday, Jamie Ramsey of the Cincinnati Reds reports. Delabar was unimpressive while with the Reds this season, giving up two earned runs in three of his seven outings while walking 10 batters. The 33-year-old does have almost 200 major league innings under his belt so it's likely he'll be picked up by another club in need of bullpen depth.
Delabar was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. After being DFA'd earlier in the week, the veteran righty cleared waivers Thursday and accepted his assignment to the minors. He figures to provide a veteran presence in the Louisville bullpen moving forward, but his value as a fantasy asset is null.
