The Tribe will send cash or a player to be named later to Arizona.
Indians fans remember Kubel from his power-hitting days with the Minnesota Twins (pictured) from 2004 to 2011. His best year was 2009, when he racked up 28 home runs and 103 RBI.
Last year, Kubel signed with Arizona and slugged a career-high 30 home runs with 90 RBI, However, he also set a career high in strikeouts with 151.
Kubel struggled with leg problems this year. He was hitting .220 with five homers and 32 RBI before Arizona designated him for assignment.
The Indians hope the 31-year-old, lefty-hitting Kubel can provide some extra pop at the plate for the final month of the season.
