While this was one of the quieter weeks in terms of the transaction wire, that doesn't mean it was boring. The past week saw the Clippers roster briefly hit 21, a trade with the Orioles, multiple promotions, Josh Tomlin and Kyle Petter on the DL, the clearing of the Tribe's DFA backlog, the professional debut of Caleb Hamrick in Goodyear, and the return of Roberto Hernandez to the Major Leagues.

Whew! What a week! At one point the Indians had four players designated for assignment (is that some sort of Major League record?). The Clippers roster ended the week standing at 22 (a few more callups sans countermove and we could be looking at the Grand Canyon of roster holes here).

The Indians dumped Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon into the trash heap, and dealt Steven Wright to the Boston Red Sox, where he'll be learning from the knuckleball of Wakefield. Kluber, Rottino, Carrera and Seddon also made the move to the bigs, while Travis Hafner headed home for the birth of a child. Oh yeah, Aaron Cunningham was DFA'ed, and kept around. Oh joy...

It was another busy week of transactions up and down the Cleveland Indians organization. In Cleveland, Brent Lillibridge joined the big league club, Roberto Hernandez returned to the USA with a rehab stint in Lake County, Logan Vick made it to Mahoning Valley, and Columbus' added free agent pitcher J.C. Romero. Get up to speed on all those moves and more in the weekly IPI Transaction Rundown.

While there weren't many moves, there were certainly some moves of substance throughout the week. Tyler Holt finally made a progression, as did Alex Monsalve. The headliner had to be the return of Travis Hafner to the big league club. Take a look at our weekly transaction rundown from the entire Indians organization with Arthur Kinney...and did I fail to mention, Pronk is back?

Here is the (heavily delayed) transaction rundown with a look back at a week that began with shuffling in the minor league rosters marked by the return to health of hot corner prospects Lonnie Chisenhall and Giovanny Urshela, and ended with Zach McAllister's return to Columbus to make room for Juan Diaz in Cleveland and Matt Lawson's return to competitive baseball from extended spring training.

The Indians did more shuffling this week than a poker dealer, as the infamous 40-day mark approaches. The Tribe saw several arms go down to injury, watched a veteran get designated for assignment, and had a starter rise back to the big leagues thanks to Josh Tomlin's injury. Arthur Kinney returns with this week's Transaction Rundown...

What a zany week for player activity for the Indians. They acquired a giant, added a 26th man to their roster, used a little-used doubleheader rule, had leave for the birth of a baby, and several other moves throughout the system. Arthur Kinney returns for his weekly transaction rundown for the first week of May.

This week's edition of Transaction Rundown comes on Cinco de Mayo, as Arthur celebrates the first Cleveland Indians' transaction figured in his weekly piece. Welcome to the club, Johnny Damon! At the same time Lonnie Chisenhall has some bad news this week at Columbus, as does Giovanny Urshela. It's not a good week to be a third baseman, unless you are Super Jack Hannahan.

It was a crazy week with player movement within the Indians system as many players were sent all over the place to cover for injuries and promotions in the upper levels. The big move of the week was Nick Hagadone coming back to Cleveland last night with Rafael Perez's trip to the 15-day DL. Arthur recaps them all!

It is Saturday morning, and that means it is time to recap another week of transactions up and down the Indians' system. Highlights of the week included LHP Nick Hagadone being recalled to Cleveland (where he probably should stay) and LHP David Huff starting his rehab assignment in Akron.

The week started off pretty quiet on the player movement front, but once the transaction wire got going, it went into overdrive. Highlights include a two-level promotion for infielder Justin Toole, highly touted relieved Cody Allen getting promoted to Akron, and some new pitchers arriving at Lake County from extended spring training.
