Padres trade ex-Wizard, TinCap Hynes to Indians

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres have traded left-hander Colt Hynes to the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations.

Hynes, who played for the Fort Wayne Wizards in 2008 and the Fort Wayne TinCaps in 2009, had been designated for assignment by San Diego on Saturday.

The 28-year-old Hynes, a 31st-round pick by the Padres in the 2007 amateur draft out of Texas Tech, split his time among the Padres, Triple-A Tucson and Double-A San Antonio last season.

He allowed 17 earned runs in 17 innings spanning 22 appearances in the majors for a 9.00 ERA, with 13 strikeouts. He posted a 1.52 ERA with 58 strikeouts in 41 combined appearances with San Antonio and Tucson.

San Diego’s 40-man roster stands at 40.
