Toregas, Anderson Hernandez Clear Waivers

FRIDAY, 9:35am: Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported last night that Hernandez and Toregas both cleared waivers.

SATURDAY, 7:27pm: The Indians have designated catcher Wyatt Toregas and infielder Anderson Hernandez for assignment, according to Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The moves free up 40-man roster spots for Austin Kearns and Mark Grudzielanek.

The 27-year-old Toregas hit .176/.267/.196 in 60 plate appearances for Cleveland last year, but owns a .264/.331/.408 career batting line in the minors. Hernandez, 27, hit .252/.315/.370 in 149 plate appearances with the Mets last season, and is a .245/.303/.324 career hitter in close to 600 big league plate appearances. He doesn't grade out too well with the glove either.

The journey continues for poor A-Hern.

Tigers on this one?

I suppose that’s what happens when you’re a significantly below average hitter that doesn’t play a good shortstop. You don’t want guys like Anderson Hernandez on your team.

Wyatt, we hardly knew you. Too bad you can’t hit, because you sure can catch.

Anderson Hernandez, well, I’m just not that impressed.
