No surprise! Indians designate Lowe for assignment


Following a 5-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals, Cleveland Indians pitcher Derek Lowe did not know that it would probably be his last outing for the team. The Indians have designated Lowe for assignment due to his continued struggles on the mound. The Indians took a chance on Lowe over the offseason, acquiring him in a trade with the Braves, but the veteran sinkerballer has been hammered more often than not.

In 21 starts for Cleveland this season, the 39-year-old Lowe went 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA. Lowe stormed out of the gates with a 6-1 record and an American League-leading 2.05 ERA through eight outings before every start became a disaster.

Over his last 13 starts, Lowe went 2-9 with an 8.28 ERA, allowing 65 runs (61 earned) on 97 hits with 28 strikeouts and 28 walks over 66 1/3 innings.

By designating Lowe for assignment, the Indians have 10 days to trade or release Lowe, or the club can send him outright to a Minor League affiliate if he clears waivers. There are certain that some team will take a chance on the 39-year-old veteran.

The Indians have taken Lowe’s spot on the roster for the promotion of Columbus right-hander Corey Kluber, who is scheduled to start against Kansas City on Thursday (today). Kluber has gone 11-7 with a 3.59 ERA in 21 starts for Columbus.

Baltimore Orioles pound Lowe, Indians, 10-2


Currently, at the end of July, the Cleveland Indians look more like pretenders, than contenders in the American League Central Division.

The Tribe has been sputtering since June 23. The Indians are 10-14 and has been passed up by the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers in the up-for-grabs division. The Indians are three games behind the White Sox.

With Derek Lowe on the mound last night, Cleveland did not fare well as a contender. Lowe gave up nine runs in three-plus innings of their 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in front of a disappointed crowd of 33,954 at Progressive Field.

The Orioles through the first five innings, pounded the baseball for five doubles, two home runs and led 9-1.

Former Indians’ star Jim Thome had a double, homer and single in going 3 for 5. The lefty-swinging slugger hit a high, deep homer to right for the 610th of his career, tying Sammy Sosa for seventh all-time on the MLB home run list.

Indians place Hagadone on disqualified list


The Cleveland Indians did not like the way LHP Nick Hagadone hurt himself over the weekend and he has been placed on the Minor League disqualified list.

The team made the move on Sunday.

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti called Hagadone’s injury a significant one to his pitching hand when he,  punched a wall after a bad relief appearance on Friday night.

The incident happened during a 10-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Hagadone gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning.
Most fans do not understand what the disqualified list is, because it is rarely used. The disqualified list is used when a player violates his contract, which happens when a player is injured in activities outside of normal baseball activity. While on the DQ list a player, in this case, Hagadone,  cannot accrue service time, will not be paid and is treated as suspended.
It is expected that Hagadone and his agent will appeal to the Players union.

Closer Chris Perez (0-1, 2.59 ERA, 24-of-25 save opportunities) and setup man Vinnie Pestano (3-0, 1.85 ERA, 39 strikeouts in 35 innings) are putting together quite a reputation as the major leagues best late-inning duo.
