Roster overload to stop?

By Sheldon Published: July 13, 2009

    So far, the Tribe has used 44 players, including 26 pitchers. [ep
   ""That's something you never want to have happen,'' manager Eric Wedge said. ""But it had to be done out of necessity. I don't anticipate that continuing in the second half.'' [ep
   Last year, the Indians used 28 pitchers; in 2007 it was 21. The team record -- also the American League mark -- is 32 pitchers. Of the 25 players who broke camp with the club, only 14 remain. [ep
    FUTURES WRAP --  Nick Weglarz and Carlos Santana, the Indians' representatives in the Futures Game failed to get a hit in three at-bats, with Weglarz going 0-for-2. [ep
   Weglarz started in left field and Santana, a catcher, entered the game in the third inning. Both Aeros players will take part in the Eastern League All-Star Game later this week in Trenton, N.J., with Santana participating in the Home Run Derby. [ep
   HERGES GONE -- The Indians released reliever Matt Herges Monday after he went unclaimed on waivers. Herges, designated for assignment on July 4, is now a free agent. [ep
   He made 21 appearances for the Tribe, compiling a 2-1 record and 3.55 earned-run average. [ep
   AND LEST WE FORGET -- Fausto Carmona's next start for Columbus is scheduled for Thursday against Syracuse. Jeremy Sowers will start for the Clippers on Sunday, also against Syracuse. ¶
   Who should the fans care? The Indians will need a fifth starter on July 25. Wedge has indicated that Sowers is a ""candidate'' for that assignment. But if Carmona can get his act together by then, he also might be considered.
