The Indians seemed like they were finally making strides to piece together the season. That was before Anthony Reyes and Aaron Laffey were bit by the injury bug yesterday.
Reyes lasted three innings before inflammation of the elbow sent him to the locker room. Laffey felt pain in his side while pitching in the eighth inning.
Oh yea, the Indians lost to the Reds 3-1.
Sheldon Ocker broke down the viable options to replace the two on the roster. Vinnie Chulk, Rafael Perez or Zach Jackson could be called up, he writes.
We'll know more today on how long the pitchers will be out.
Jeremy Sowers could be recalled when Reyes' turn in the rotation comes around.
The Indians will need a reliever first, writes Paul Hoynes. Jensen Lewis pitched three scoreless innings Friday, making him useless for the next few days.
He doubts the Indians will call up Akron pitcher Hector Rondon to fill the starting void.
