CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians announced a series of roster moves on Monday, most notably activating Yonder Alonso from the Family Medical Emergency List.
Alonso missed the weekend series with the Twins as he was placed on the list Friday. He is currently batting .248 (55-for-222) with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.
The team also signed Marc Rzepczynski to a minor league deal, and he has been assigned to Class Triple-A Columbus. The left-handed reliever spent the first two months of the season with the Seattle Mariners before he was designated for assignment on June 1 and later released.
Rzepczynski was previously with the Indians from 2013-15, and he posted an ERA of 2.70 along with 90 strikeouts across 145 relief outings. He appeared in a career-high 73 games in 2014.
Along with the above two moves, the team optioned Greg Allen to Columbus. Melky Cabrera also cleared outright waivers after being designated for assignment and has elected free agency.
