Jays Designate Tallet for Assignment
Tallet is a tall and lanky left-hander that throws a fastball in the 89-92 MPH range, and also features a cutter, slider and changeup in his arsenal.
The 28-year-old split the 2005 season between the Indians and Triple-A Buffalo. With Cleveland, Tallet appeared in nine games, including five starts, and went 1-2 with a 3.48 ERA. In 2005, with Buffalo, he went 6-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 22 games including 17 starts for the Bisons.
Drafted by Cleveland in the second round in 2000 out of Louisiana State, Tallet made his big-league debut with the Indians in 2002. He split the 2003 season between Buffalo and Cleveland, but didn't pitch after July 26 and eventually had Tommy John surgery on his elbow.
He spent most of the 2004 season recovering, but did pitch for four clubs in the Indians' minor-league system.
The Blue Jays now have ten days trade, release or outright Tallet to the minors.
