Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 4 May 2016 at 7:03 pm

The Cleveland Indians have designated 31-year old righty swinging catcher Adam Moore for assignment.  Moore didn’t play in any games for the Indians this year.  He played in 1 game for the Tribe in 2015 and he was 1 for 4 (.250 avg, .500 OPS) with 1 RBI.  Moore has now played in 87 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 54 of 269 (.201 avg, .550 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 6 homers, 21 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  This is not much of a loss for the Indians, as they have traded for Chris Gimenez and they have signed Luke Carlin as of late.

The Cleveland Indians have acquired 33-year old righty swinging C/1B Chris Gimenez from the Texas Rangers for cash considerations.  Gimenez played in 36 games for the Rangers last year and he was 25 of 98 (.255 avg, .820 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 5 homers, 14 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  The Indians better hope that he’s better for them this time around.  He has played in 81 games in his first three years with the Indians and he is only 27 of 178 (.152 avg, .517 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 4 homers, 15 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Gimenez has now played in 221 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 119 of 545 (.218 avg, .639 OPS) with 66 runs scored, 11 homers, 55 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Gimenez will be the Indians’ new backup catcher until Roberto Perez returns to action.

The Cleveland Indians have signed 35-year old switch-hitting catcher Luke Carlin to a minor league deal.  Carlin played in 55 games in AAA-ball for the A’s and Cubs last year and he was 25 of 158 (.158 avg, .551 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 0 homers, 13 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Carlin last played in the majors back in 2012 with the Cleveland Indians.  Carlin played in 10 games for the Indians in his two years with them and he was 8 for 26 (.308 avg, .869 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Carlin has played in 56 games in his first four years in the show and he is 25 of 140 (.179 avg, .549 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers, 11 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Carlin will help the Tribe with depth at catcher, as he will be an insurance policy in the minors while Roberto Perez is out of action.
