Indians recall RHP Jeanmar Gomez, send Matt LaPorta back to Columbus _ bit of a shocker.— Tom Withers (@twithersAP) August 30, 2011
Per Tom Withers of the Associated Press. LaPorta's demotion is perhaps more symbolic than anything else — but even so, it's pretty stunning. LaPorta can be recalled at any time by putting Choo on the DL, a move that hasn't been made yet. Otherwise, he can be recalled on Sept. 9. No option is used as long as he's recalled by Sept. 18.
