CHICAGO -- Vinny Rottino, who was designated for assignment to free a 40-man roster spot for left-hander Justin Hampson, has been claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Indians. Rottino has options remaining and can be sent to Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians designated for assignment right-hander Chris Schwinden, another ex-Met, in order to free up the 40-man roster spot for Rottino. Schwinden originally was claimed off waivers from the Mets by the Blue Jays, and then grabbed again by the Indians off waivers days later.
