The Cleveland Indians have designated 26-year old lefty starter/reliever T.J. House for assignment.  House pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the Tribe this year and he was 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.  House also pitched in 33 games (12 starts) in AAA-ball for the Tribe this year and he was 5-3 with 1 save, a 3.98 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP.  House pitched in 27 games (22 starts) in his three years with the Tribe and he was 5-7 with a 4.44 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.  This isn’t much of a loss for the Tribe moving forward.

The Cleveland Indians have designated 30-year old righty swinging outfielder Collin Cowgill for assignment.  Cowgill played in 9 games earlier this year for the Tribe and he was 1 for 12 (.083 avg, .298 OPS).  He also played in 100 games in AAA-ball for the Indians and he was 82 of 347 (.236 avg, 636 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 4 homers, 29 RBI and 7 stolen bases.  Cowgill has played in 317 games in his first six years in the show and he is 161 of 689 (.234 avg, .627 OPS) with 83 runs scored, 12 homers, 57 RBI and 14 stolen bases.  The Indians needed Cowgill’s roster spot in order to promote catcher Adam Moore.  They won’t miss Cowgill.

UPDATE:  Collin Cowgill has accepted an outright assignment to AAA from the Tribe.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 1 September 2016 at 1:25 am

The Cleveland Indians have called up 27-year old righty reliever Perci Garner for his first shot at pitching in the show.  Garner pitched in 41 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball so far this year and he is 7-1 with 7 saves, a 1.83 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP.  Garner has given up 52 hits and 22 walks while whiffing 70 batters in his 78 2/3 innings in the minors this year.  To make room for Garner in the bullpen, the Tribe has sent 25-year old righty reliever Shawn Armstrong to A-ball.  Armstrong has pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the Tribe so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  He has also pitched in 47 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Indians this year and he was 3-1 with 9 saves, a 1.84 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.  Armstrong will probably be called back up on Monday, when the A-ball team he is pitching for season ends.

The Cleveland Indians have acquired 36-year old switch-hitting outfielder Coco Crisp and cash from the Oakland A’s for 31-year old lefty reliever Colt Hynes.  Crisp played in 102 games for the A’s this year and he is 92 of 393 (.234 avg, .698 OPS) with 45 runs scored, 11 homers, 47 RBI and 7 stolen bases.  Crisp started his Major League career with the Cleveland Indians from 2002-2005.  Crisp played in 415 games in his first four years with the Tribe and he was 467 of 1,626 (.287 avg, .756 OPS) with 235 runs scored, 35 homers, 176 RBI and 54 stolen bases.  Crisp has now played in 1,566 games in his first 15 years in the show and he is 1,561 of 5,877 (.266 avg, .729 OPS) with 868 runs scored, 128 homers, 631 RBI and 306 stolen bases.  Crisp has also played in 31 games in the post-season so far in his career and he is 29 of 103 (.282 avg, .715 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 1 homer, 8 RBI and 4 stolen bases.  Crisp helped the Boston Red Sox win the World Series in 2007 (over the Rockies) and he played for manager Terry Francona!  The Indians needed another outfielder, as Abraham Almonte will be ineligible to play in the playoffs due to his PED suspension!  The Indians had recently just signed Colt Hynes to a minor league deal.  Hynes pitched in 9 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Tribe this year and he was 1-0 with 1 save, a 6.10 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 26 August 2016 at 12:10 am

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.
