Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone gets extra service time under grievance settlement

  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Cleveland pitcher Nick Hagadone will receive an additional 94 days of major league service time and the Indians will have the right to option him to the minor leagues this season under a grievance settlement between Major League Baseball and the players' association.

The left-hander broke his left forearm following a poor relief outing against Tampa Bay on July 6, 2012. The Indians said the injury was self-inflicted, and reports said he was hurt slamming a door as he returned to the Cleveland clubhouse. He was optioned to the minors on July 7, was placed in the Indians' minor league disqualification list the following day and didn't pitch again that season.

The union filed a grievance, and Hagadone's service time will increase to 1 years, 127 days, under the agreement the team announced Tuesday. As part of the deal, the option used two years ago will not count.

The 28-year-old left-hander was 0-1 with a 5.46 ERA in 36 relief appearances with the Indians last year.
