The Indians have demoted 24-year old righty swinging OF Matt LaPorta to AAA. LaPorta played in 13 games for the Indians this season and he was 8 for 42 (.190 avg, .572 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He will be back at some point this season, after all, the Indians only gave up C.C. Sabathia for him last season. The Indians have recalled 25-year old switch hitting OF Trevor Crowe to replace LaPorta on the active roster. Crowe played in 21 games earlier this season for the Indians and he was 6 for 33 (.182 avg, .462 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He wasn’t exactly tearing the cover off of the ball before the Indians recalled him. He has played in 21 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 17 for 74 (.230 avg, .618 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.
