The Indians designated reliever Rafael Perez for assignment Tuesday. They replaced Perez on the 40-man roster with reliever Nick Hagadone.
Perez was 1-0 with a 3.52 ERA in only eight games for the Indians this past season. The lefty missed most of the season because of injury.
In seven seasons with the Indians, Perez was 21-12 with a 3.64 ERA in 338 games.
Hagadone was 1-0 last season with a 6.39 ERA in 27 games.
