Cleveland Guardians Pitcher Goes Unclaimed On Waivers; Sent Outright

Cleveland Guardians pitcher Jason Bilous was designated for assignment for the second time this year, just one month after the team claimed him off waivers from the Chicago White Sox.

Bilous, a former 13th-round pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, struggled with control issues and posted a 6.30 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP over 105.2 innings last season between Double-A and Triple-A.

Despite being placed on waivers, Bilous went unclaimed by other teams and has been outrighted to Triple-A Columbus.

He will remain with the Guardians organization and is expected to provide additional pitching depth for the team.

For his minor-league career, the 25-year-old has compiled a 5.51 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, with 381 strikeouts over 326.2 innings and 96 appearances.
