Nick Hagadone was placed on something called the minor league disqualified list on Sunday. Hagadone resides there after suffering what General Manager Chris Antonetti called a significant injury to his pitching hand when he evidently punched a wall -- or some other unforgiving item -- after a bad appearance on Friday.

Indians Weekend Wrapup: Heading Into the Break With a Thud
