It didn’t look good when the Indians sent starting pitcher Brett Myers to Cleveland after Friday night. That concern was confirmed when the Indians placed Myers on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon with a right forearm injury. Corey Kluber, last night’s winning pitcher with four solid innings of relief work to close out the game, will assume Myers’s spot in the rotation on Wednesday against the White Sox. Myers has allowed 10 home runs in 4 games (3 starts) and is 0-3 with a 8.02 ERA. To fill the roster spot occupied by Myers, the team called up Fernando Nieve from Columbus for long relief help. In 3 games (1 start), Nieve has allowed two earned runs and 10 hits in 13 innings for the Clippers, walking 4 and striking out 17. Last season, the 30-year-old right-hander was 7-9 with a 5.96 ERA at Triple-A Albuquerque in 25 games (24 starts). With Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound this afternoon and given his recent struggles, the Tribe decided to continue carrying 13 pitchers for the time being. With Asdrubal Cabrera day-to-day after falling in the dugout before last night’s game, the team has only 11 available hitters, one of them being Jason Giambi, who would likely only play the field in an emergency.
