In a move that appears to be long overdue:
CLEVELAND, OH — The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has recalled RHP JENSEN LEWIS & RHP BRIAN SLOCUM from AAA Buffalo. To make room for Lewis and Slocum the club has designated RHP JOE BOROWSKI & RHP RICK BAUER for assignment.
This will at least give Mark Shapiro and company 1o days to figure out what to do with the same guy who managed to save 40+ games last season. Can the trade market be very strong at this point? He is just fresh off of another blown save. If no one offers anything for him, he’ll likely be placed on waivers.
