With 2009 officially over, here is a quick refresher of all the players that were released or who retired over the course of the 2009 season. I posted a listing back at the end of September, but there have been 8-12 releases since then, so this is just a quick refresher as we get set to begin the prospect coverage for 2010. A lot of these guys were never true "prospects" and more organizational players, but I am sure there are a handful of surprises to some.

Note: This listing will be housed in the reference section on the right panel. Also, this is from info I have received throughout the year from the Indians and their affiliates. Not all releases are made public or are mentioned, but close to all (if not all) are included below.
