The Cleveland Indians have released 30-year old righty reliever Tommy Hunter.  Hunter pitched in 21 games (0 starts) for the Indians this year and he was 2-2 with a 3.74 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  He also pitched in 14 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Tribe this year in which he was 2-1 with 1 save, a 3.00 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP.  Hunter has been banged up all year long for the Indians, so seeing them let him go isn’t much of a surprise.

The Cleveland Indians will activate 26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar off the D.L. on Thursday and he will start against the White Sox.  Salazar was an American League All-Star for the first time in his career earlier this season.  He has pitched in 20 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 11-4 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.  He has given up 96 hits and 51 walks while whiffing 133 batters in his first 117 1/3 innings for the Indians this year.  But since July 1st, Salazar has pitched in 5 games (all starts) in which he was 1-1 with a 7.88 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP.  That’s why the Indians shut him down, because he was pitching through a sore right elbow.  Hopefully the rest gets him back on the right path.  To make room in the rotation for Salazar, the Indians are sending righty Mike Clevinger to the pen.  Clevinger has pitched in 6 games (5 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 5.81 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.  He has given up 25 hits (4 homers) and 17 walks while whiffing 20 batters in his first 26 1/3 innings for the Tribe so far this year in his first taste of the majors.  Clevinger won his first Major League game last week against the Angels (the Indians won 5-1).  He worked 5 2/3 innings against the Angels in his start last week and he only gave up 1 hit, 1 run (it was earned) and 4 walks while whiffing 3 batters.  Clevinger has a great arm, so he could help the Tribe in the pen as long as he throws strikes.

House to AAA.  House has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.
