As expected, the Indians unveiled a series of roster moves this afternoon. On the pitching side of things, RHP Josh Tomlin was activated from the DL and RHP Jairo Asencio, ye’ of 5.96 ERA, was designated for assignment. At the hot corner, 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was promoted back to Cleveland for the first time in 2012, and 3B Jack Hannahan (strained calf) was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Tomlin’s return to the rotation was announced a few days ago, and he will start for the Tribe against the Royals this afternoon. Asencio likely pitched his final game in a Tribe uniform Sunday, allowing three runs to the White Sox in the blowout 12-6 loss, and will likely have a choice to accept an assignment to AAA Columbus if he passes through waivers. Chisenhall was batting .324/.353/.541 in 28 games for the Clippers this season, with four homers and 17 RBI. He also spent about three weeks on the disabled list with a strained calf, returning just on May 19. Since his return, he had three two-hit games in a span of six contests. Hannahan returned to the Indians lineup Saturday after missing about 10 games with a sore back. He returned for one game, and now is out for at least the next two weeks with another injury, adding to the team’s recent injury spell. Tomlin (1-2, 4.67 ERA) will face off against Kansas City’s Nathan Adcock (0-2, 2.33 ERA) at 4:05 p.m. this afternoon.
