The Indians lost a long time member of their minor league system today as free agent third baseman/outfielder Jared Goedert agreed to a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates. However, over the past few days they have added two players as they signed free agent infielder Luis Hernandez and resigned right-handed pitcher Hector Rondon, both to minor league deals.

It was a busy Halloween for the Indians as not only did they announce their 2013 Major League coaching staff and their decisions on the club options for Ubaldo Jimenez, Roberto Hernandez and Travis Hafner, but they also made three moves to clear space on the 40-man roster. See who was removed after the jump...

While this was one of the quieter weeks in terms of the transaction wire, that doesn't mean it was boring. The past week saw the Clippers roster briefly hit 21, a trade with the Orioles, multiple promotions, Josh Tomlin and Kyle Petter on the DL, the clearing of the Tribe's DFA backlog, the professional debut of Caleb Hamrick in Goodyear, and the return of Roberto Hernandez to the Major Leagues.

Whew! What a week! At one point the Indians had four players designated for assignment (is that some sort of Major League record?). The Clippers roster ended the week standing at 22 (a few more callups sans countermove and we could be looking at the Grand Canyon of roster holes here).

The Indians dumped Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon into the trash heap, and dealt Steven Wright to the Boston Red Sox, where he'll be learning from the knuckleball of Wakefield. Kluber, Rottino, Carrera and Seddon also made the move to the bigs, while Travis Hafner headed home for the birth of a child. Oh yeah, Aaron Cunningham was DFA'ed, and kept around. Oh joy...
