The Cleveland Indians have placed 31-year old righty reliever Jeff Manship on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27th, due to right wrist tendinitis.  Manship has pitched in 37 games (0 starts) for the Tribe so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  He has given up 30 hits and 13 walks while whiffing 20 batters in his first 29 1/3 innings this year for the Indians.  The Indians have activated 28-year old righty reliever Zach McAllister to replace Manship on the active roster.  McAllister has pitched in 30 games (1 start) for the Tribe so far this year and he is 2-2 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP.  He has given up 28 hits and 15 walks while whiffing 28 batters in his first 26 2/3 innings this year for the Tribe.  The Indians need McAllister to get back to pitching like he did last year for them.

The Cleveland Indians place Yan Gomes on the D.L.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 18 July 2016 at 5:29 pm

The Cleveland Indians have placed 28-year old righty swinging Yan Gomes off the D.L. due to a separated right shoulder.  Gomes has played in 71 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 41 of 249 (.165 avg, .512 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 8 homers and 32 RBIs.  He has whiffed 69 times against only 9 walks so far this year, so he wasn’t very selective at the plate.  The Indians have activated 27-year old righty swinging Roberto Perez off the D.L. and he will probably take over as the starting catcher until Gomes returns to action.  Perez has played in 9 games in Rookie+A+AAA-ball on his rehab assignment from his fractured thumb and he was 5 for 16 (.313 avg, .917 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.  He also has played in 4 games for the Indians earlier this year and he was 0 for 8 (.000 avg, .400 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  Perez has now played in 103 games in his first three years with the Tribe and he is 65 of 277 (.235 avg, .720 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 8 homers and 26 RBIs.  33-year old righty swinging Chris Gimenez will continue to serve as the backup and Trevor Bauer’s personal catcher moving forward.  Gimenez has played in 35 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 16 of 85 (.188 avg, .501 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 2 homers and 6 RBIs.

UPDATE:  The Indians will be without Yan Gomes for the next 4-8 weeks.
