The Indians have outrighted 27-year old right handed pitcher Brian Slocum to AAA making him a free agent. Slocum pitched in 2 games (0 starts) for the Indians last season and he was 0-0 with a 27.00 ERA and a 4.00 WHIP. He also pitched in 30 games (11 starts) in AAA ball in 2008 and he was 3-7 with 1 save, a 4.85 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. The Indians have decided that they’ve definately seen enough of Slocum who has been pathetic for them. In two seasons with the Indians, Slocum has pitched in 10 games (2 starts) in which he is 0-0 with a 7.78 ERA and a 2.24 WHIP. He gave up a stunning 35 hits in 19.2 career innings with the Indians who won’t miss him one bit in 2009 and down the road.
