It’s been a rough start to the 2016 season for Indians pitcher Cody Anderson, and today the team made a roster move with him.
The team sent Anderson to AAA Columbus, brining up relief pitcher Kyle Crockett to take his place on the roster.
Anderson pitched Tuesday during the Indians loss to the Twins, and again had his issues.
In four starts he’s posted a 7.65 ERA (20.0IP, 34H, 17ER, 4BB, 14K, .374 avg.).
Crockett has spent the entire year to date at AAA Columbus, posting no record with a 1.29 ERA in 6 relief outings (7.0IP, 5H, 1R/ER, 1BB, 3K, .208 avg).
Kyle has limited right-handed batters to a .118 (2-for-17) average against during his tenure with the Clippers after recording an ERA of 1.86 (9.2IP, 7H, 2ER, 2BB, 9K, .189 avg) this spring.
