FRIDAY: The Indians released Redmond, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via Twitter).
Redmond, 39, has made just two starts since Carlos Santana joined the big league club. In 22 games for the Tribe this season, the veteran has hit .206/.242/.270. For his career, Redmond owns a slash line of .287/.342/.358.
The catcher can retire comfortably if he chooses to do so. Baseball Reference estimates that Redmond has earned roughly $9MM in his 13-season major league career.
