GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have cut veteran right-hander Tomo Ohka and two other pitchers.

Ohka was in camp as a non-roster invitee. He and left-hander Ryan Edell were sent to Cleveland’s minor league training camp on Sunday. Left-hander Rich Rundles was optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians now have 59 players in camp.

Ohka, who will turn 33 on Wednesday, made three spring training appearances. He allowed 14 hits and 10 runs, six of them earned, in 3 2-3 innings.

He was signed to a minor league deal in December after spending 2008 at Triple-A Charlotte in the Chicago White Sox’ system, going 5-11 with a 4.18 ERA.

The native of Japan had a 50-63 record and 4.14 ERA in 184 games (172 starts) for Boston, Montreal, Washington, Milwaukee and Toronto.
