The Cleveland Indians have placed right-hander Brett Myers
on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm injury, according to Nick
Camino of WTAM 1100.

Myers has been dealing with discomfort in his right forearm
since the middle of spring training. The issue has increased each time the
veteran has pitched, and it’s obviously impacted his performance so far this
Over four games – including three starts – Myers has allowed
19 earned runs on 29 hits over 21 1/3 innings. The right-hander has surrendered
10 home runs and five walks while striking out 12 batters over that span. The
Indians have not offered a timeframe for his return.
With Myers hitting the DL, the Indians will move swing man
Corey Kluber into the rotation. Cleveland called up Fernando Nieve from
Triple-A to replace Kluber in the bullpen.
