Cleveland Indians Send Josh Tomlin To Bullpen, Call Up Corey Kluber

Pitching inconsistency has plagued the Cleveland Indians all season even as they've pushed their way up near the top of the AL Central. They made another move to try and swap around the pitching rotation on Tuesday when they brought starter Josh Tomlin in as a reliever to replace the ineffective Derek Lowe. Jordan Bastian on twitter later reported that Tomlin to the bullpen was going to be an official move. They also have a replacement coming up:
