On the same day he was supposed to throw out the first pitch at the Cleveland Indians game, the Cleveland Browns released safety Tyvis Powell on Friday, according to Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com.

The Browns announced Friday that they waived Powell just four months after acquiring him off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

Powell is a Bedford, Ohio, native who attended Ohio State.

The 23-year-old appeared in eight games for the Seahawks last season, primarily on special teams.

The Indians will host the Chicago White Sox on Friday night at Progressive Field.
