Indians Release Doug Mathis

Righty Doug Mathis requested and was granted his unconditional release, Indians GM Chris Antonetti told MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (Twitter link).  He'd been reassigned to the minors three days ago.

Mathis, 27, was signed by the Indians to a minor league deal in early January.  At Triple-A, mostly as a starter, he posted a 5.66 ERA, 5.5 K/9, 3.1 BB/9, and 0.7 HR/9 in 89 innings last year.  He was worse with the Rangers in 22 1/3 relief innings, allowing seven home runs and 30 hits.
