Cole cleared waivers Monday and will remain in the Indians' organization.
Cole was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus but will still be in major-league camp as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old projected as a potential mid-rotation starter as a prospect but has yet to put things together at the big-league level, recording a 5.05 ERA in 148 innings.
Cole was designated for assignment by Cleveland on Monday.
Cole was removed from the roster to make way for the newly acquired Nick Wittgren, who came over in a trade from Miami. Cole lasted less than a month on the Indians' 40-man roster after being claimed from the Yankees in January and could be on his way to his third team of the offseason should any team be interested in a 27-year-old with a career 5.05 ERA.
