Texas native Jay Bruce and the Indians have now raised more than $90,000 to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Bruce is from Beaumont, Texas, and along with his wife, Hannah, pledged to match any donations sent to Cleveland Indians Charities up to $100,000 through Sept. 10. Bruce tweeted on Thursday that as of 4 p.m. fans had raised $91,488.89.

On top of Bruce’s family matching $100,000, the Indians announced this week that all donations sent to Cleveland Indians Charities through Sept. 10 will impact nonprofits in Texas affected by the devastating hurricane.

Roster call-ups

Major-league rosters expand to 40 players on Friday, affording teams the ability to either call up prospects without losing a roster spot or the chance to add some depth for the stretch run to the postseason.

According to ESPN’s Keith Law, outfielder Greg Allen will be among those being promoted by the Indians. Allen this season is hitting .264 with a .344 on-base percentage, 16 doubles and 21 stolen bases in 303 plate appearances for the RubberDucks.

Allen, the No. 8 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, was nearly on his way to Milwaukee last season when the Indians and Brewers agreed to a trade involving catcher Jonathan Lucroy just prior to the nonwaiver deadline. Once Lucroy vetoed that trade, the Indians kept Allen, along with current No. 1-ranked prospect Francisco Mejia — another call-up candidate — and two others.

On Friday, Allen will reportedly get his first chance at the major-league level with the Indians, in part thanks to Lucroy’s veto.

Minor trade

The Indians on Thursday completed a deal with the New York Yankees, sending away minor-league catcher Erik Kratz for cash considerations.

Kratz, 37, this season hit .270 with 16 home runs, 16 doubles and 37 RBI in 86 games for Triple-A Columbus.
