Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Tyler Cloyd is likely to sign with the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Cloyd was released by the Indians on Tuesday, presumably to pitch overseas. The 27-year-old owns a 5.98 ERA over 17 starts and two relief appearances in the majors and spent the entire 2014 season in the minors.
Jan 6 - 3:22 PM

Indians released RHP Tyler Cloyd.

Cloyd was re-signed to a minor league deal back in November, but he's now free to seek an opportunity elsewhere. The 27-year-old posted a 3.89 ERA over 166 2/3 innings last season in Triple-A.
Jan 6 - 12:52 PM

Indians re-signed RHP Tyler Cloyd to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Cloyd spent all of this season at Triple-A Columbus, posting a 3.89 ERA over 166 2/3 innings. He'll give the Tribe some organizational depth.

Tyler Cloyd pitched well in Saturday's Cactus League start against the Padres, allowing just two hits over two scoreless innings.

The 26-year-old right-hander has now tossed three scoreless innings to begin the spring season. He's a longshot to crack the Indians Opening Day rotation and doesn't hold any mixed league value at the moment.

Indians re-signed RHP Tyler Cloyd to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The Indians non-tendered Cloyd earlier this month after claiming him off waivers and then designating him for assignment. He's now back in the organization and will likely begin 2014 in the Triple-A rotation. Cloyd posted a 6.56 ERA in 60 1/3 innings with the Phillies in 2013.

The Indians are attempting to re-sign Tyler Cloyd to a minor league contract.

Cleveland has enjoyed a brief and tumultuous relationship with Cloyd. First, they claimed him off waivers from the Phillies in October. In November, they designated Cloyd for assignment themselves, and earlier this month they non-tendered him. It's too early to say whether the Indians' brass has re-endeared themselves to the Cloyd household. Cloyd posted a 6.56 ERA in 60 1/3 innings with the Phillies in 2013.

Indians non-tendered RHP Tyler Cloyd.

It comes a week after he was designated for assignment. Cloyd posted a 6.56 ERA in 60 1/3 innings with the Phillies in 2013 before being claimed off waivers in October. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere.

Indians designated RHP Tyler Cloyd for assignment.

The move cleared a roster spot for new outfielder David Murphy, who was officially signed to a two-year, $12 million free agent contract on Monday. Cloyd, 26, posted a 6.56 ERA in 60 1/3 innings with the Phillies in 2013. He was claimed off waivers by the Tribe in October.
Mon, Nov 25, 2013 11:59:00 AM

Indians claimed RHP Tyler Cloyd off waivers from the Phillies.

Cloyd, 26, made 11 starts for the Phillies this season, going 2-7 with a 6.56 ERA over 60 1/3 innings. He'll most likely serve as depth for the Indians heading into the offseason.

Tyler Cloyd was torched for seven runs in one-plus innings by the Braves on Thursday.

Cloyd may well have gotten himself knocked from the 40-man roster with his last few performances. He ends the year 2-7 with a 6.37 ERA in 11 starts and one relief appearance. He's a fine Triple-A pitcher, but the stuff just isn't there for him to be of much use to a major league team.

Tyler Cloyd was hammered for five earned runs in five innings Saturday as the Phillies fell to the Mets.

Cloyd opened strong, but the Mets pounded him for four runs in the top of the sixth inning just before the rain started pouring in Philly. The game was eventually called in the seventh. Cloyd has a brutal 5.40 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 58 1/3 innings this season.

Tyler Cloyd allowed seven runs over four innings in a loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

Cloyd had his start moved up to Tuesday after Roy Halladay was scratched due to the flu. Cloyd has been more good than bad over nine starts this year, but Tuesday he got touched for the most runs he's allowed in a single outing this season. Cloyd moved to 2-4 with a 4.56 ERA with the loss.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 10:06:00 PM

Tyler Cloyd will take Ethan Martin's spot in the Phillies' rotation.

Martin has struck out over a batter per inning, but he holds a 6.90 ERA and 1.80 WHIP and simply wasn't pitching deep enough into games. Cloyd has put up a 3.57 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 45 1/3 frames this season. He'll start next week against the Padres.
Fri, Sep 6, 2013 03:57:00 PM

Phillies recalled RHP Tyler Cloyd from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cloyd has put up a 3.57 ERA but a 1.50 WHIP over 45 1/3 frames at the major league level this season. He'll be available as a long reliever for now, but he's a good bet to make a start or two down the stretch.
