Marson to DL, Gomes back up, and Barnes added
April 28, 2013
The Cleveland Indians today announced that they have recalled catcherYan Gomes and placed catcher Lou Marson on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation (retroactive to April 25). They also recalled left-handed reliever Scott Barnes from Tripe-A Columbus for the doubleheader.
Gomes returns after being sent down to Columbus earlier in the week. He has appeared in six games with the Indians from April 9-24 and hit .211 (4-for-19) with a triple, two homers and three RBI (.842 OPS). In six games with Columbus he has hit .300 (6-for-20) with four 2B and three RBI.
Barnes is making his 2013 season debut on the roster in Cleveland. In seven relief appearances with Columbus he went 2 -0 with a 4.70 ERA, and in 7.2 innings he allowed seven hits, five walks, and has eight strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .280against him, but he has limited batters to a .182 (2-for-11) average against with runners on and a .250 (2-for-8) mark by left-handed hitters.
Marson has been bothered by shoulder soreness periodically in spring training and the regular season. This marks the second DL stint of his season/career as he has appeared in three games (0-for-3) after going on the DL from April 9-24 with a cervical strain.
The Indians 25-man roster now consists of 26 players because of today’s scheduled day/night doubleheader in Kansas City. A player will have to be removed prior to Monday's game.
