The Cleveland Indians announced tonight that the club has placed right-handed pitcher Vinnie Pestano on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis. To take Pestano’s place on the 25-man roster, the Indians have recalled left-handed pitcher Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus. Hagadone (No. 50) is scheduled to be in uniform for Monday night’s four-game series opener against Oakland at Progressive Field. Hagadone, 27, has made eight relief appearances for Cleveland this season, posting no record and a 2.45 ERA (2 ER/7.1 IP) during his first stint with the Indians from April 12-30. He was optioned to Columbus following his last outing for the Tribe on April 30 vs. Philadelphia (1.0 IP, 2 BB). Hagadone has also tossed 4.0 scoreless frames across four relief appearances for the Clippers. Pestano, 28, has made eight relief appearances for Cleveland, posting no record and a 2.25 ERA (2 ER/8.0 IP). His last appearance came in Game 2 of the Indians’ April 28 doubleheader on April 28 at Kansas City (1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R-ER, 2 BB). Prior to Monday’s game, Indians manager Terry Francona stated that Pestano would be available to pitch this week after several games of rest. Pestano will be eligible to be activated on May 16, as Hagadone’s recall falls within a 10-day period of his most recent active date on the Major League 25-man roster (April 30). MLB rules stipulate that Pestano’s DL placement must be back-dated to May 1, or the day after Hagadone’s option to Columbus. [Related: Tribe Weekend Recap: Streak ends, but series Tribe takes series]
