Cleveland Indians Transactions: Matt Albers reinstated from Restricted List, Fernando Nieve Designated for Assignment

"Don't you cry/I'll be back to pitch someday!" - USA TODAY Sports

With apologies to Frosty.

Fernando the Snowman was a minor-league arm

With an ERA of One-Two-Eight

And a strikeout rate of Twelve

***

Fernando the Snowman was a fairy-tale they say,

He didn't throw but the die-hards know

How he came to life one day.

***

There must have been some problems in

Brett Myers' arm they found

For when he went for the MRI

Ole Fernando came down.

***

Oh Fernando the Snowman

Was as good as he could be

And the die-hards say he could throw the ball

Several innings at a time.

***

He went to Houston with his glove

Right to Francona's desk

And he only paused a moment when

He heard him holler "STOP!"

***

For Fernando the Snowman

Had been DFAd

But he waved goodbye saying

"Don't you cry,

I'll be back to pitch someday!"
