Indians cancel Jon Garland signing after pitcher doesn’t take physical exam

5 Comments

Last week the Indians and Jon Garland agreed to a minor-league contract and as usual with such deals it was pending a physical exam.

Those are usually just a formality, but Garland is coming back from shoulder surgery and Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that he never took the physical exam … so the Indians canceled the signing.

Garland was scheduled to be examined Monday and it’s unclear if he simply no-showed or told the team in advance. Either way, the rehabbing 32-year-old right-hander is back on the open market.
