Report: Indians to Call Up Pitching Prospect James Karinchak

Many Indians fans have been keeping a close eye on right-handed reliever James Karinchak, and now with just 18 games left in the season Tribe fans will get to see him in an Indians uniform.

Jeff Passan of ESPN tweets that the Indians are calling up Karinchak, a player who could give the pen a huge boost as the club fights for the playoffs.

Karinchak has been spectacular in the minors this year, as he has struck out an
astonishing 81 percent of batters he has faced.

In 30.1 minor league innings he’s struck out 74 batters.

Likely Karinchak will be available come Friday night when the Indians open up a critical three-game set against the AL Central leading Twins.
