Aaron Cunningham clears waivers, sent to Columbus

The Tribe designated outfielder Aaron Cunningham for assignment on Wednesday to make room for the recently acquired Brent Lillibridge. Major League teams had three business days to claim Cunningham off of waivers. None did. WTAM’s Nick Comino tweets:

Cunningham is batting .175 with 1 HR and 7 RBI in 72 games (97 ABs) with the Tribe this season. It was Cunningham’s sacrifice squeeze on Tuesday night that gave the Indians the go-ahead run in their 3-2 victory over the Tigers.

    The fact that he cleared waivers and they took him back should tell people just how sad the organization has become again.
