The Cleveland Indians have parted ways with Chris Colabello, releasing the first baseman/outfielder Saturday.
Cleveland originally signed the 33-year-old to a minor league deal in December with an invitation to spring training. Colabello batted .225/.324/.333 with six home runs in 296 plate appearances with triple-A Columbus, and never got a call up to join the Indians.
Colabello is just two seasons removed from helping the Toronto Blue Jays win a division title. In that 2015 season he hit .321/.367/.520 with 15 home runs over 360 plate appearances. He was with the Blue Jays for just 10 games last season after serving an 80-game suspension for a failed PED test in April 2016.
