Found July 12, 2012 on Fox Sports Ohio:
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone will be out at least two months after having surgery to fix a broken left arm the team says he injured in frustration. Hagadone had a screw inserted into his broken left forearm, which he hurt following an appearance last week against Tampa Bay. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said the left-hander's injury was "self-inflicted." The Indians optioned Hagadone to the minor leagues and then placed him on their minor league disqualification list. The Indians claim they don't have to pay him while he's sidelined. The baseball players' union may file a grievance against the club if it withholds Hagadone's pay. His next scheduled payday is Sunday. Hagadone's contract is worth 480,500 in the major leagues and 78,250 in the minors.

Box Score: Blue Jays 0, Indians 1

What a great way to start off the second half. Justin Masterson was, well, masterful, and the usual duo of Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez was dominant in the final two frames. A solo shot in the second by Travis Hafner was all of the firepower the Indians offense needed to improve to 45-41 on the season. This was a crucial victory with both Detroit and the White Sox leading as of...

Indians' Masterson bounces back from season-worst outing
