CLEVELAND (AP) -Reliever Roberto Hernandez was put on unconditional release waivers Thursday by the Cleveland Indians.
The 42-year-old Hernandez, whose 326 saves are 11th on the career list, was designated for assignment on June 20. He went 3-1 with 6.23 ERA in 28 games after signing a $3.5 million, one-year contract as a free agent in December.
The right-hander has pitched for nine major league teams since being called up in 1991 by the Chicago White Sox. He is 67-69 with a 3.39 ERA.
Cleveland is responsible for the remainder of his $3.3 million salary this year and a $200,000 buyout of a $3.7 million team option for 2008.
