Indians recall INF Valbuena
The Cleveland Indians have brought up infielder Luis Valbuena
from Triple-A Columbus.
Valbuena filled the roster spot left open when pitcher Zach
McAllister was optioned to the Clippers after pitching four innings
in his major league debut Thursday night.
This is Valbuena’s second stint with the Indians this season. He
played in 91 games for Cleveland last year, batting just .193 in 91
games. He’s been swinging the bat well for Columbus, hitting .313
with 12 homers and 56 RBIs in 77 International League games.
He has played 46 games at shortstop, 11 games at both third base
and left field and five games at second. He was with the Indians on
May 19-20, but did not play.
