Indians Minor League Report:
RHP Randy Newsom transferred from Akron
INF Andy Cannizaro transferred to Mahoning Valley
Today’s roster move:
The Indians have recalled LHP Tony Sipp from Columbus. LHP Zach Jackson will be optioned down and he’ll have 72 hours to report. RHP Scott Roehl has been transferred from Akron so the Clippers currently have a full 24-man roster.
Columbus will need to open a roster spot for Jackson once he reports.
The Clippers were beaten 13-6 Tuesday night in Indianapolis.
After the Indians game, Josh Barfield was optioned to Columbus and Aaron Laffey was recalled by Cleveland. Laffey will pitch in Kansas City on Wednesday (Laffey’s 24th birthday). The addition of Barfield gives the Clippers 13 position players and 11 pitchers.
Here is an updated roster:
Catcher Chris Gimenez was hit in the head by the bat of Robinzon Diaz during the fourth inning. The backswing of Diaz caught Gimenez on the top of his head. Gimenez suffered a concussion and required five stitches. “He’ll be day to day and should be fine tomorrow.” Torey Lovullo said, “We’re just hoping there is no post-concussion syndrome.”
Audio highlights and Torey Lovullo’s post-game comments can be heard here.
The Clippers have seen the roster change again, even before the season opener:
The Cleveland Indians today placed INF JAMEY CARROLL on the 15-day disabled list with a fifth metacarpal shaft fracture of the left hand. The DL transaction is retroactive to Sunday, April 5. To assume Carroll’s spot on the roster, the Indians have purchased the contract of INF TONY GRAFFANINO from AAA Columbus.
Carroll was hit by a pitch by Astros reliever Doug Brocail in the 9th inning of Saturday’s exhibition game against the Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park. He will be examined in Baltimore later today. This is Jamey’s first career trip to the disabled list at the Major League level. Carroll batted .295 (18-61) with 7 runs scored, 2 doubles and 6RBI in 20 games this spring. He is eligible to come off the DL on April 20th.
Graffanino, who was re-assigned to minor league camp on April 4, batted .271 (13-48) with 8 runs scored, 2 doubles, a homer and 5RBI in 23 spring games. He wears #4 and will be in uniform for today’s game against the Texas Rangers at 2:05PM ET in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
The Indians now have 3 players on the Major League disabled list (Westbrook/Dellucci/Carroll). The 40-man roster now stands at 39.
Following Saturday’s game against the Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park, the Cleveland Indians re-assigned CA DAMASO ESPINO, INF TONY GRAFFANINO, RHP MATT HERGES, INF ANDY MARTE and INF WILSON VALDEZ to minor league camp.
The Tribe’s 25-man roster is at 25 and the 40-man roster stands at 38.
The Indians will officially announce their Opening Day roster following Sunday’s workout in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, TX.
NOTE: The Clippers roster will be formally announced on Monday. I’ll post it here.
