Slowey climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with R.A. Dickey last offseason, but he didn’t enjoy nearly the same success in 2012. The Indians picked him up as rotation insurance in January following Roberto Hernandez‘s arrest in the Dominican Republic, but he failed to make the rotation out of spring training. Slowey ended up making just eight starts at Triple-A Columbus due to a stress fracture in his rib cage, posting a 5.14 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio over 49 innings. He made $2.75 million this season and was set to get a raise in arbitration, so the Indians recently decided to cut him loose.
Slowey has a 4.66 ERA over five major league seasons, all with the Twins. The 28-year-old right-hander may struggle to get a guaranteed major league contract.
