Indians swap pitchers, sending Lee to the minors and calling up House

By Stephanie Storm Published: May 17, 2014

The Indians sent right-handed reliever C.C. Lee down to Triple-A Columbus and called up left-handed pitcher T.J.  House from the Clippers. Lee was 0-0 with a 4.76 ERA in 13 relief appearances with the Tribe, allowing seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits over 11 1/3 innings.

House, 24 was a starter at Columbus, where he was 1-2 with a 2.40 ERA while striking out 34 batters and issuing 11 walks. However, the Indians would use him out of the bullpen if the need for a long reliever were to arise like it did in Friday’s 11-1 loss to the A’s. Tribe starter Zach McAllister lasted a career-low 1 1/3 innings, taxing the Indians bullpen for the final 7 2/3 innings.

House’s major league promotion marks his second, as he spent three days on the active roster last year (June 24-26), but did not pitch.
