Delabar was released by the Indians on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Delabar hasn't played this season after incurring an 80-game suspension for violating the MiLB drug program, and it's becoming increasingly unlikely he'll get a chance to throw a pitch this year. The 33-year-old reliever appeared in seven games for the Reds last season, racking up a 6.75 ERA in eight innings, before signing a minor league contract with Cleveland in January.

Delabar was suspended 80 games for violating the MiLB Drug Prevention Program.

EDGE Analysis

Delabar hadn't appeared in a minor-league game due to the looming suspension. He hasn't been an effective big league reliever since 2013, so this isn't too much of a loss for the Indians.

Delabar signed a minor league deal with the Indians on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old righty has not been an effective big league reliever since 2013. He will offer organizational bullpen depth, likely starting the year at Triple-A.

Delabar was released Friday, Jamie Ramsey of the Cincinnati Reds reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delabar was unimpressive while with the Reds this season, giving up two earned runs in three of his seven outings while walking 10 batters. The 33-year-old does have almost 200 major league innings under his belt so it's likely he'll be picked up by another club in need of bullpen depth.

Delabar was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being DFA'd earlier in the week, the veteran righty cleared waivers Thursday and accepted his assignment to the minors. He figures to provide a veteran presence in the Louisville bullpen moving forward, but his value as a fantasy asset is null.

The Reds designated Delabar for assignment Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Delabar walked 10 batters in only eight innings, making less stable than most of the already volatile Reds bullpen.

Delabar recorded just one out while giving up two runs and five walks in Tuesday's 13-1 loss to the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

He's now walked seven batters over his last two appearances, and that lack of control could soon have Delabar en route back to Triple-A Louisville. Even in a historically bad Reds bullpen, Delabar stands out as one of the poorer performers with a 7.71 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 9:9 K:BB ratio across seven innings.

Delabar had his contract selected Saturday from Triple-A Louisville.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds announced a slew of moves Saturday afternoon, and both Delabar and Drew Hayes will join the team from Louisville. In order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Delabar, Cincinnati moved catcher Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) to the 60-day DL. Delabar will add right-handed depth to the Reds' bullpen, and there's an outside chance he could be tried in a closing role after the team optioned J.J. Hoover back to Triple-A on Saturday.

Delabar was signed to a minor-league contract by the Reds on Saturday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delabar, who was released by the Blue Jays this past week, will provide pitching depth in the Reds' organization with the possibility of a call-up at certain points throughout the season. The former all-star appeared in 31 games for Toronto last season, but struggled his way to a 5.22 ERA.

Delabar was released by the Blue Jays this week.

EDGE Analysis

He may latch on with a minor league deal elsewhere. Delabar made the AL All-Star team in 2013, but has struggled in the two seasons since.
