The Cleveland Indians have called up 29-year old righty reliever Austin Adams. Adams has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Indians this year and he was 2-1 with 4 saves, a 1.10 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. He has given up only 11 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 18 batters in his first 16 1/3 innings in AAA ball this year….so he has been outstanding in the minors. Adams has pitched in 37 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Tribe and he is 2-0 with 1 save, a 4.69 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. The Indians have sent 24-year old lefty reliever Kyle Crockett to AAA to open up a roster spot for Adams. Crockett has pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the Tribe so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 14.73 ERA and a 2.46 WHIP. He has given up 7 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his first 3 2/3 innings for the Indians this year. He has now pitched in 85 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Indians and he is 4-1 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. The demotion of Crockett to AAA leaves the Indians without a left handed reliever. That will be something to keep an eye on.
