CLEVELAND: Nick Hagadone has been placed on the disqualified list by the Tribe, which means he does not receive his salary or major-league service time.
General Manager Chris Antonetti said that Hagadone was angry over his poor pitching performance Friday, and struck an object with his left hand after being removed from the game against the Rays.
“”Nick has been placed on the minor-league disqualified list because of a self-inflicted injury to his pitching hand,’’ Antonetti said today. “”He will see Dr. (Thomas) Graham Monday and we’ll have an update on Tuesday.’’
The disqualified list is used to discipline players for violations of their contracts. Teams can keep players on the list for an indeterminate time, up to two years. While they are on the list, players do not receive their salaries or major-league service time.
“”We’re certainly disappointed by Nick’s reaction,’’ Antonetti said. “”He was frustrated after coming out of the game. We wish it had happened differently, but he was very remorseful afterward.’’
Antonetti said he expected that the injury would keep Hagadone off the mound ""for awhile.''
