The Winnipeg Goldeyes placed left-handed pitcher Rich Hawkins on irrevocable waivers late Sunday.
Hawkins being placed on waivers was for the purpose of the team granting his release.
Hawkins, 22, went 3-1 with a 7.82 ERA in eight starts with the Goldeyes this season.
The Goldeyes now have 20 players on their active roster, including 11 pitchers and nine position players.
