By sstorm Published: August 1, 2008

After spending the last month pitching at Triple-A Buffalo, Aeros all-time save leader Randy Newsom returned to Canal Park just before Friday night's game got underway.

In order to make room on the Akron roster for the right-handed closer, right-hander Jim Deters was released.

Newsom went 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA and 24 saves in 36 appearances with the Aeros before making his Triple-A debut July 2. In nine appearances with the Bisons, he went 0-1 with a save and tidy 1.89 ERA.

Deters, the Tribe's seventh selection in the 2005 draft, went 0-3 with a 6.91 ERA in 10 games, including four starts.
