From the Indians-

“The Indians announced today that the club has acquired RHP ESMIL ROGERS from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for cash considerations. To make room on the club’s 40-man roster, Cleveland has also designated C LUKE CARLIN for assignment.

Rogers, 26, has made 23 relief appearances for the Rockies this season, going 0-2 with an 8.06 ERA (23 ER/25.2 IP). The right-hander is averaging 10.2 strikeouts-per-9.0 innings, fanning 29 batters against 18 walks. He has also held left-handed batters to a .235 (12-51) clip. Rogers, who is out of options after pitching in parts of 4 major league seasons, is scheduled to join the Indians in the coming days. He was originally signed by Colorado in 2003 as a non-drafted free agent out of the Dominican Republic and has gone 34-30 with a 4.65 ERA (293 ER/567.2 IP), 445 strikeouts and 190 walks in 104 career games/101 starts at the minor league level.

Carlin, 31, has spent the bulk of the 2012 season at Triple-A Columbus, batting .231 (18-78) with 3 doubles, 2 homers and 12 RBI in 23 games. He has registered a .990 (2 ER/193 TC) fielding pct. in 22 games behind the plate, throwing out 8-of-26 (30.8%) attempted base-stealers. Carlin also appeared in 4 games with Cleveland (3-for-14, 2B, RBI, 2 R) after having his contract purchased from Columbus on May 26 (optioned back on June 6). The Indians have 10 days to trade, release or outright Carlin to the minor leagues.”

Shoulder shrugs all around.
