Boy, what a busy day on the transactions front. I suggest scrolling down the page for the other two updates provided earlier in the day.
Anyway, RHP Frank Herrmann has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus. RHP Jack Cassel was moved to Mahoning Valley to make room for Herrmann, though as reported earlier LHP Jeremy Sowers has left Columbus and Herrmann will ultimately be replacing...

RHP Matt Herges has been activated on the 40-man and called up to Cleveland, and LHP Rafael Perez optioned to Triple-A Columbus. To make room on the roster for Herges, the Indians released RHP Juan Salas.

As I mentioned yesterday, RHP Danny Salazar is up from extended spring training and has joined Low-A Lake County. He will move into the starting rotation with RHP Paolo Espino sliding back into the bullpen. To make room for Salazar, INF Matt Willard was moved up to High-A Kinston to fill in the vacant spot left open by INF Cristo Arnal. Arnal was just called up in the last few days to Triple-A Columbus...

Jeremy Sowers was a late scratch from his scheduled start last night, a change that came in shortly before the start of the game. Zach Jackson made the spot start for Triple-A Columbus instead. Sowers is not injurred, and it looks like he is either on his way to Cleveland or has been traded. If he is on his way to Cleveland, it will be interesting to see how he is used and if he goes into the bullpen...

Norfolk sweeps twinbill from Clippers
The Clippers dropped both halves of a double-header to the Norfolk Tides on Tuesday night 5-0 and 5-2. The biggest story of the night may have happened before the game as Jeremy Sowers was held from his scheduled start after manager Torey Lovullo talked with the Indians brass. After the second game, the skipper had no further information regarding Sowers'...

RHP Danny Salazar is up from extended spring training and with Low-A Lake County. He will slide into the starting rotation. The move is not official yet, but he should be activated when his spot comes up in the rotation (no idea when that is at the moment). No word on who is being sent out to make room for him.

Low-A Lake County had a scheduled off day on Monday night.
Clippers Washed Out In Norfolk
The Columbus vs. Norfolk game scheduled for Monday night was washed out because of rain. The game will be made up as part of a double-header tomorrow (Tuesday). The first game starts at 6:15pm and LHP Jeremy Sowers (1-1, 2.25) goes against LHP Rich Hill (0-1, 5.40) of Norfolk. In game two RHP Jack...

Some roster moves were made on Monday. INF Cristo Arnal was called up from High-A Kinston to Triple-A Columbus and RHP Scott Roehl was put on the disabled list with a strained groin. Also, INF Jared Goedert was activated from the Double-A Akron disabled list and INF Josh Rodriguez was put on the disabled list with a hamstring injury he suffered running the bases last Wednesday. Rodriguez is leading...

For the third week in a row the Kinston Indians claim the Carolina League Player of the Week as K-Tribe first baseman Matt McBride takes the honors. The K-Tribe has now garnered five of the first six Carolina League Weekly Awards with outfielder Matt Brown and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall taking home the hardware in weeks one and two, along with Pitchers of the Week Kelvin De La Cruz and Eric Berger.

This week I decided to focus on a hitter, given that last week’s column looked at a pitcher (Jeanmar Gomez). For those following league transactions, you might have noticed that Gomez got the call up to AA this week. I thought I would pick another candidate who could soon make the jump to AA, Matt McBride. McBride is on a tear for high A Kinston currently, and there has been much speculation that...

Clippers Offense Quiet In Loss
It was a battle of pitching in the final game of the four-game series between Columbus and Durham, but the Bulls were a bit better en route to a 4-2 win over the Clippers to earn the series split.
Durham scored three runs in the second against Kirk Saarloos on only two hits, taking advantage of a walk and a hit batter. Half an inning later, Columbus answered...

Columbus Slugs Out Another Win, 10-6
Outfielder Matt LaPorta, infielder Luis Valbuena, and infielder Josh Barfield may be gone, but Columbus is still red hot at the plate. The Clippers pounded out 13 hits and 10 runs, winning their second straight game and putting up double digit runs in the second straight game as well.
Third baseman Andy Marte led the way going 2-for-4 with 2 HR and...

Everyone knows that OF Matt LaPorta, INF Luis Valbuena, and INF Josh Barfield were all called up today to Cleveland. To fill their open roster spots, OF Trevor Crowe was optioned out from Cleveland, INF Andy Cannizaro was activated off the Mahoning Valley roster, and OF George Lombard was activated off the disabled list.
Also, OF/1B Stephen Head was reportedly hurt in last night's game. No...

Infielder Matt Willard was activated from extended spring training and added the the Low-A Lake County roster today. He fills the vacant spot on the roster left when RHP Kyle Landis was promoted to High-A Kinston yesterday. With this move, it appears that RHP Paolo Espino will stay in the rotation for now and a starter from extended spring training will not be brought up yet. That said, this should...

Columbus Wins, Several Players Called Up To Cleveland Afterward
Columbus pounded Durham 14-1 on Friday night. But the news of the night was the Indians announcing after the game that OF Matt LaPorta, INF Luis Valbuena, and INF Josh Barfield have been called up to Cleveland. OF Trevor Crowe has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus, INF Tony Graffanino designated for assignment, and RHP Joe Smith...

First off let me apologize to Tony, I agreed to do a blog a week and this is only my second in April or my first of May by the time this gets posted. So Tony again I apologize. I am finding it a lot harder than I originally thought to write these things. Someone very close to me I will not name names….Michelle…cough, told me the problem with some blogs is that some of them come off as people trying...

Today the Indians promoted RHP Kyle Landis from Low-A Lake County to High-A Kinston. No word on who Landis is replacing in Kinston, and who is replacing Landis in Lake County.
My speculation: Landis may be taking the spot of RHP Mike Pontius in Kinston who may have tweaked something the other night and may be hurt. No confirmation on that yet. Also, the Lake County bullpen was overloaded, and...
