Indians add RHP Putman; Choo, Tomlin doing rehab

The Cleveland Indians have added right-hander Zach Putman to
their bullpen.

Cleveland selected Putman’s contract from Triple-A Columbus
before Tuesday night’s game in Texas.

Putman, who has never pitched in the majors, went 6-3 with a
3.65 ERA and nine saves in 44 appearances for Columbus.

Outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (left oblique strain) and right-hander
Josh Tomlin (right elbow soreness) rejoined the Indians to continue
their rehabs.

Manager Manny Acta says Choo has a chance to play in the series
finale Thursday.

When Choo gets back in the lineup, Kosuke Fukudome could play
left field for the first time. He caught fly balls in left during
batting practice Tuesday.
