Two relatively big moves to announce for today.
Per Indians media relations:
The Cleveland Indians today announced they have recalled Lou Marson from AAA Columbus. Marson will wear #30 and becomes the 31st member of the Major League roster.
Marson, 23, has split most of the 2009 season at the Triple A level between AAA Lehigh Valley & AAA Columbus in the International League where he has hit at a combined .277 (87-314) with 18 doubles, 2HR & 33 RBI in 91 games (42RS, 40 walks, .361 on-base%). Lou was acquired along with 4 others from the Philadelphia Phillies on July 29. With Columbus he hit .243 (25-103) in 28 games.
And per the Browns media relations:
The Cleveland Browns today signed the following six players to the practice squad: DB Brandon Anderson, LB Titus Brown, RB Chris Jennings, WR Lance Leggett, OL Pat Murray and DL Brian Schaefering.
Marson was the third-highest prospect for Philly coming into this season, any may very well be the starting catcher come next year until Carlos Santana gets the call. Jennings really turned a few heads against the Bears last week, albeit against a back-up defense. He will provide depth at a position that is definitely in question in terms of the future.
