Hagadone was released by the Mariners on Tuesday.
It seems that Hagadone, who was pitching in relief for Triple-A Tacoma, was let go to pursue other opportunities rather than as a result of poor performance. He hadn't allowed a run in his last 9.2 innings with Tacoma and is carrying a 3.51 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 33.1 frames on the season. Hagadone, who last appeared in the majors in 2015 with the Indians, will likely attempt to land another minor-league deal with an organization that offers a clearer path back to the big leagues.
Hagadone agreed to a minor league deal with the Mariners on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Hagadone missed all of 2016 recovering from an elbow fracture, which he sustained while pitching for the Indians. He spent parts of the last five seasons with the Tribe, accumulating a 4.72 ERA across 118.1 innings pitched.
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.
Indians southpaw reliever Nick Hagadone was scheduled for 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.
If he is indeed out for the season, as is indicated, he will end it 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."
Indians reliever Nick Hagadone was pulled from his first minor league rehab appearance with an apparent elbow injury. Hagadone was able to record one out before being lifted.
The Indians are expected to provide more details in the next day or two. Hagadone, who is recovering from a back strain, was pitching for Class A Mahoning Valley.
Indians pitchers Josh Tomlin (shoulder) and Nick Hagadone (back) will throw in Wednesday's game for Class A Mahoning Valley.
Tomlin, who will start Wednesday's game, is having his rehab assignment transferred from Double-A Akron. He also made one appearance in the Arizona League (rookie) on July 5.
Hagadone, who will pitch in relief, is beginning a rehab assignment Wednesday.
The Indians placed reliever Nick Hagadone on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday due to a lower back strain. The move is retroactive to July 7.
To take his spot on the roster, reliever Kyle Crockett was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.
Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone was called upon with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a one-run game and delivered an inning-ending strikeout in his team's 4-3 win over the Mariners on Saturday.
"That's huge for me," Hagadone said of manager Terry Francona continuing to use him in key sutiations, per MLB.com. "Knowing that Tito has the confidence to put me out there in those situations, and that he doesn't lose that confidence if I have a couple bad outings, it's huge for my confidence. It's just great to play for a manager like that."
Hagadone, who finished the day with an inning of work and just one hit and no runs allowed, threw a cutter on his first pitch to Kyle Seager with the bases loaded.
"It's a new pitch," Hagadone said. "It just helps to keep them off-balance, because a lot of hitters, especially with me, are sitting on fastballs only. So, if I can just kind of throw something else up there in the strike zone, it kind of helps me not allow them to just sit on that."
Seager fouled off a fastball on the next pitch before swinging and missing at a curveball out of the zone to end the potential rally.
"Hags [made] some really big pitches in a key spot," Francona said. "I'm not really sure there wasn't a key spot, though, when you're in a game like that. They were putting pressure on us all night. We did some really good things to manage to hang on there."
Indians reliever Nick Hagadone suffered his first loss since 2013, Tuesday against Texas.
Hagadone entered in the sixth and stranded the go-ahead run at third base. After retiring the first five batters he faced, Hagadone allowed the game-winning home run to Mitch Moreland with one out in the eighth.
"He pitched good. He got like five outs on nine pitches," manager Terry Francona said. "But he fell behind Moreland, and actually threw a ball, but because he was behind in the count Moreland cheated a little bit and hit it good. That's a shame because I thought he pitched really good."
It was the only baserunner he allowed in 1 2/3 innings.
Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone went two scoreless innings in Cleveland's 4-2 win over the Twins Saturday. Manager Terry Francona loves what he's seen from Hagadone so far, reports MLB.com.
"Hags threw the ball so well," Francona said. "He has the ability to do this. If you let an outing or two [affect your thinking], if you kind of put a guy in the penalty box, you're not going to get to see what he can do. That doesn't help anybody."
Hagadone has now thrown 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts and just two walks with a 3.38 ERA.
"He did an outstanding job," closer Cody Allen said. "Hags is a big part of this team. He's a guy that I know Tito likes to lean on, because he's a left-hander that can get righties and lefties out. He's got great stuff. He did a great job for us last year and we're looking for him to do the same thing this year."
Indians starter Trevor Bauer flirted with a no-no on Thursday against the Astros, but still managed to pick up the win in his first start of the season.
Bauer (1-0) was pulled with a no-hitter after throwing 111 pitches through six innings. He struck out a career-high 11 and walked five. Kyle Crockett and Scott Atchison each pitched a scoreless inning, respectively before Jed Lowrie broke up a combined no-hit bid with a one-out solo home run in the ninth inning off Nick Hagadone.
Bauer will return to the mound Wednesday at home against the White Sox. He pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings last season against Chicago.
The Indians have made a flurry of moves, including the placing of starter Justin Masterson on the disabled list with a knee issue.
