As expected, the Indians made more cuts today. RHP Zach McAllister and INF Cord Phelps were optioned to Columbus. RHP Chen-Chang Lee and OF Trevor Crowe were reassigned to minor league camp.
And then there were 46.
I can’t say that I’m surprised McAllister went to Columbus. He didn’t exactly impress during Spring Training or in the games he pitched last year during the regular season. I have no doubt we’ll see Cord Phelps and Chen-Chang Lee again–they just need more time. As for Trevor Crowe, he was hitting well during Spring Training but never seems able to seal the deal at the major league level.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
