The Cleveland Indians recalled starting pitcher Adam Plutko from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday and sent outfielder Brandon Guyer to the 10-day disabled list as the corresponding move.
Plutko has spent most of his season so far playing for the Columbus Clippers. The 26-year old holds a 4-3 record in seven starts with a 2.25 ERA in 2018. Plutko is ranked fifth among pitchers in the International League in ERA, ranked first in WHIP, and is tied for fourth-most wins. He made his first Major-League start on May 3rd against Toronto in the second game of a doubleheader. Plutko earned the win, going 7.1 innings while striking out six and walking none.
The righty had previous time with the Tribe last September from the bullpen.
Guyer is now the fourth Cleveland outfielder to hit the disabled list this year, joining Tyler Naquin, Bradley Zimmer, and Lonnie Chisenhall. The lefty-hitting specialist has played in 33 games this season and is batting .150 with three home runs and ten runs batted in.
The Tribe now has eight players on the disabled list and have an increasingly large hole in the outfield.
