The Indians have sent Lou Marson to the 15 day disabled list to nurse a sore shoulder. The shoulder had been bothering the tribe catcher since spring training limiting him to just 3 appearances this season.
On the year Marson is 0-3 in five plate appearances, with walks in the others. He’ll be making his second trip to the DL this season after being shelved back on April 9th with a cervical strain.
With Marson on the disabled list, the Indians recalled catcher Yan Gomes from AAA Columbus. Gomes received his first big league call up in wake of Marson’s earlier stint on the DL appearing in 6 games for the tribe. Gomes was 4-19 at the plate with 2 home runs on his first trip to the majors, including homering for his first career hit.
Lefthander Scott Barnes also received the call up today, bringing the Indians roster to 26 men for Sunday’s day/night double header. Barnes began the year in AAA Columbus making 7 relief appearances and acquiring a 2-0 record with a 4.70 E.R.A.
