The Indians have announced a couple of roster moves as they are now three weeks away from opening day in the 2016 MLB Season.
The team optioned righty pitcher Mike Clevinger, lefty pitcher Ryan Merritt, lefty pitcher Shawn Morimando and infielder Zach Walters to Triple-A Columbus.
In 10 games this Spring, Walters was just 1-for-14 (.071) at the plate. Clevinger was in three games, recorded a save, and had an ERA of 1.50.
Morimando was 0-1 with a 8.31 ERA in three games, and Merritt was 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in four games.
The Tribe also optioned right-handed pitcher Dylan Baker to AA Akron, and re-assigned right-handed pitcher Adam Plutko and righty pitcher Will Roberts to minor league camp.
The current Major League spring training roster currently consists of 53 players, 18 of which are non-roster invitees.
