With Yan Gomes (knee) returning from the disabled list for Sunday's game against the Reds, the Indians had no use for keeping Hayes around as a third catcher. The 31-year-old went 5-for-32 (.156) during his stay with the Indians, and owns a lifetime line of .205/.250/.359. Expect any interest in Hayes from other clubs to be tempered.
