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.

Reds promote reliever Redmond to take Votto’s roster spot; adds bullpen depth

 

With first baseman Joey Votto being placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds decided to add a 13th pitcher when right-hander Todd Redmond was recalled from Triple-A Louisville.

Redmond is wearing uniform No. 58.

It’s been a whirlwind for the 27-year-old Redmond, who was traded from the Atlanta Braves to the Reds on Saturday for shortstop Paul Janish. The Braves’ Triple-A affiliate at Gwinnett was playing the Reds’ Triple-A Louisville club at the time.

Redmond went from Gwinnett to Columbus, Ohio to play Louisville’s next game and was supposed to start on Tuesday for the Bats.

After getting the callup, Redmond had to make the 105-mile drive from Columbus to Cincinnati.

Redmond, who has never pitched in the big leagues, but was once called up by Atlanta and not used, was 6-6 with a 3.58 ERA in 18 starts for Gwinnett this season. His stay with the Reds will be a short one. The team needs another bat and is looking to acquire one.

As expected, Bobek leaves OSU; chooses Minnesota

Former Ohio State football player Brian Bobek has made his decision to continue his academic/career at the University of Minnesota.

There is a penalty for Bobek transferring in the Big Ten. By choosing another Big Ten team, Bobek will lose a year of eligibility. Bobek, an offensive center, becomes eligible in 2013, and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Bobek, who is 275 pounds, did not fit into the new spread offense as a lighter center.

He will not get the chance to play against the Buckeyes because the Gophers do not play again until 2015.

After arriving in Columbus as one of the top high-school centers in the nation, Bobek did not play much as a freshman. He fell behind in spring football practices to Corey Linsley and Jacoby Boren.

In a surprise move, Loth leaves Otterbein for Western Connecticut State

In a surprise move late last Thursday, May 17, head football coach Joe Loth surprised Columbus area media, the town of Westerville and Otterbein fans when rumors started circulating around town that he was leaving his alma mater, to sign a multi-year contract to rebuild the program at Western Connecticut State.

Loth’s leaving probably even shook the media relations department because until this day, there has not even been an article written declaring his resignation or leaving the university. That is strange in itself.

Western Connecticut State University is a public state university, established in 1903. It has an enrollment of 5,907 and located in Danbury, Connecticut. It is an NCAA Division III school with 14 varsity sports. Their nickname is the Colonials and play in two conferences, the ECAC, Eastern College Athletic Conference and the LEC, Little East Conference.

The rebuilding job at Western Connecticut State will take longer than at Otterbein. But Loth will recruit from talent in Connecticut, New York City and Long Island.

The football team plays in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, where it has had a tough time under former coach John Burrell, going 0-10, 0-10, 2-8 and 2-8. Its last winning season was in 2005.

The 45-year-old Loth could not pass up the chance at WCSU where he is very familiar with the town and university. He was the Colonials defensive coordinator from 1993-1997. His wife, Keri graduated from the school as well.

Loth is certainly good at rebuilding. During his tenure at Otterbein, he saw the football program receive a shot in the arm with new facilities for the football program, including a renovated Memorial Stadium and football field. Also, before he was hired by former athletic director Dick Reynolds, the Cardinals had only one winning season in 23 years. In his final seven seasons, the program had four winning years and saw the school’s first berth into the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2008 with a 9-2 record and 8-1 in the OAC, second to Mount Union. Loth was named OAC Coach of the Year and Ohio Coach of the Year that season.
