Hoyt (knee/elbow) was moved to minor-league camp Monday. Hoyt received a big-league camp invitation when he signed his minor-league deal back in December, but his stay on the major-league side wasn't particularly long. He is still recovering from offseason knee and elbow surgeries and hasn't thrown a pitch in a game this spring.
Hoyt (knee/elbow) has been throwing off the mound and facing hitters in live batting practice this spring but is without a timeline to make his Cactus League debut, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Hoyt is recovering from offseason right knee and right elbow procedures, prompting the Indians to take a slow approach with him this spring. After an injury-marred 2018 campaign in which he tossed just 29 innings between Triple-A and the majors, Hoyt isn't a serious candidate to win a spot in the Tribe's Opening Day bullpen. He'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Columbus once he's fully healthy.
Hoyt (knee) agreed to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with Cleveland. Hoyt re-signed with the Indians after spending the final three months of the regular season with the organization. He only wound up appearing in three games for Triple-A Columbus before hitting the disabled list with a knee injury, though he should be back to full health prior to spring training.
Hoyt (knee) will become a free agent after the Indians failed to offer him a contract for the 2019 season, Tribeinsider reports. Although Hoyt is technically free to sign with anyone, Cleveland will likely attempt to keep him around by signing him to a minor-league deal. The 32-year-old was kept on the shelf due to injury for the majority of the 2018 season, appearing in just one game for the Astros out of the bullpen prior to being traded to the Indians in July.
Hoyt was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in order to be placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. Hoyt has been out since late July with knee soreness. He'll be eligible to return in mid-September, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to do so.
