The Indians called up Tim Laker from AAA and sent Kelly Shoppach back down. To make room on the 40 man roster they transferred Matt Miller to the 60 day DL
I like this move only because Shoppach was not going to get any playing time and Laker is probably better suited to play only once a week. It will be interesting to see how Shoppach does in AAA. I think the Tribe might be better off trading him, cause he will never play much as long as Victor is the starting catcher.
Also, it is interesting that both catchers in the Coco/Marte trade did not stick very long wih thier new teams as Josh Bard was traded from the BoSox to the Padres
