CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The Cleveland Indians have placed rookie reliever Nick Sandlin on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain.
He suffered the injury in Wednesday night’s loss to Oakland.
Cleveland recalled left-handed pitcher Alex Young from Triple-A Columbus. The 27-year-old is a native of Westlake, Ohio, and was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 26.
This season with Arizona, Young posted a record of 2-6 with a 6.26 ERA, allowing 29 earned runs in 41 2/3 innings of work.
Back in 2016, Young was rated as the Diamondbacks’ No. 3 overall prospect. His father is a Baldwin Wallace Athletics Hall of Famer.
