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 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 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.

20-year old switch-hitting catcher Francisco Mejia came into this season as the Cleveland Indians‘ #10 prospect according to Baseball America.  The Tribe might wind up being glad one day that Jonathan Lucroy vetoed a deal that would have sent Mejia to the Brewers.  Mejia went 3 for 4 with a double last night, so he extends his hitting streak to an amazing 48 games this year!  Mejia has now played in 84 games in A-ball for the Indians so far this year and he is 118 of 339 (.348 avg) with 56 runs scored, 7 homers, 71 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Mejia has now played in 289 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 315 of 1,083 (.291 avg, .779 OPS) with 149 runs scored, 24 homers, 184 RBIs and 11 stolen bases.  Mejia has a huge upside!
