The Indians have designated 23-year old righty starter/reliever Fabio Martinez for assignment. Martinez pitched in 16 games (8 starts) in A-ball for the Indians and Dodgers in which he was 0-7 with a 10.24 ERA and a 2.45 WHIP. He has pitched in 80 games (58 starts) in his first six years in the minors and he is 18-15 with 1 save, a 4.00 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. This isn’t much of a loss for the Indians.
UPDATE: (11/27/2012) – The Indians have outrighted Fabio Martinez to AAA, as he has cleared waivers.
