Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians released former closer Joe Borowski and pitcher Rick Bauer on Thursday.
Borowski recorded a career-best 45 saves last year for the American League Central champion Indians, but was not reliable this season. In 18 games he posted a 7.56 earned run average, with only six saves in 10 opportunities.
Bauer has elected free agency, and posted a 13.50 ERA in four relief appearances for the Indians this year.
