Latest News

The Indians have placed Brett Myers on the DL with "right elbow inflammation". Corey Kluber will take Myers' spot in the rotation, and to help the bullpen, the Indians purchased the contract of Fernando Nieve:

Kluber will start Wednesday's game in Chicago. I believe with Matt Albers on the Restricted List, the Indians didn't need to clear a spot on the 40-man for Nieve.
