Indians bring up pitcher C.C. Lee

DETROIT -- Before the opening of Friday's four-game series against the Tigers, the Indians officially called up pitcher C.C. Lee to fill the open roster spot that was created on Tuesday when Zach McAllister was optioned to Columbus. Lee was in the clubhouse on Thursday when Cleveland had an optional workout at Comerica Park. This is Lee's third stint with the Tribe this season...

Indians recall T.J. House, option C.C. Lee

The not-so-dynamic duo of Danny Salazar and Zach McAllister really did a number on the Indians bullpen over the last two nights. In fact, the pen saw so much work that the Tribe made a move to replenish their NINE man bullpen. C.C. Lee is out, and Clipper starter T.J. House is in. Lee has been with the club since April 9th when he took the spot vacated by Vinnie Pestano, who carried...

White Sox broadcaster refers to pitcher's 'typical Asian motion'

Chicago White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson is best known for being a huge homer and not for delivering play-by-play with the type of tact that legends like Vin Scully display. So it’s probably not too surprising to hear the poor phrasing he used when talking about Cleveland Indians pitcher Chen-Chang Lee. Lee is a relief […]

Indians demote Vinnie Pestano, Recall C.C. Lee

The struggle continues for Cleveland Indians reliever Vinnie Pestano. His fall from being one of the best setup men in baseball also continues on its ugly plummet. On Tuesday, Pestano was tagged in the ninth inning of a 8-6 win over San Diego. He came in with the game in blowout mode for the Tribe with a 8-3 advantage. Pestano left the game with two outs in the ninth and the tying...

Indians option Vinnie Pestano to Columbus, recall C.C. Lee

Fresh off of a ninth inning that left a lot to be desired, the Cleveland Indians have optioned relief pitcher Vinnie Pestano to Columbus and recalled C.C. Lee. Pestano, who had (by all accounts) regained the velocity which had escaped him a year prior, will leave the big league club with a 13.50 ERA in three relief appearances. With a fastball that has been clocked in the high...

Lee, Recovered and Looking to Impact 2014 Bullpen

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

The IBI's 2014 Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown continues with right-handed pitcher Chen-Chang Lee.

What to Expect from C.C. Lee in 2014

Chen-Chang Lee was called the most Major League ready Indians' prospect at the beginning of 2013 (by BurningRiverBaseball) and the number two prospect in 2012 (behind T.J. McFarland, who was taken in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft). Since he was signed as a 21 year old out of Taiwan in 2008, he has been one of the Indians best relief prospects and he finally made his debut last year....
