The Cleveland Indians have officially recalled starting pitcher Trevor Bauer from Triple-A Columbus. He will start on Wednesday night against former Indians ace Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Bauer is making his second start for the Indians after making his debut on April 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays. In said start, Bauer lasted five innings, allowing just two hits but walked seven. He also had an at-bat following an injury sustained by catcher Lou Marson.
During his time in Triple-A, Bauer has made three starts, going 1-0 with an ERA of 2.50. He’s thrown 15 innings, allowing just five earned runs to go with 24 strikeouts and just six walks. Would-be hitters have been held to a .242 average.
To make room for Bauer on the 25-man roster, the Tribe optioned left-handed reliever Nick Hagadone. Hagadone has appeared in eight games with the Indians, recording an ERA of 2.45 without a decision.
