Casually reading articles around the internet I came across this quote Shapiro was credited with on the Indians official website.'Who knows? Maybe Raffy Perez goes back there. Maybe we give Adam Miller a look there. Maybe Tom Mastny gets back in sync, and he becomes that guy'
This comes from Anthony Castrovince's latest notes column linked here.
I was trying to remember an example of such a high profile Indians prospect pitcher in recent years transitioned to the pen and all I could remember was Tavarez, and he's not even close.
This seems very surprising, but he's definitely an intriguing option for the pen and maybe fits better there this year with some of the injury issues he has had so far this year. It is nice to see the team taking win now stances in their thought process, and hopefully it makes for a very interesting month regarding roster moves.
