We now know who will get the start on Friday for the Indians, Aaron Laffey, but are still waiting to see who will be sent packing. As Paul Hoynes says, there are plenty of candidates.
Jensen Lewis with 13 strikeouts and 13 walks in 19 2/3 innings, is a candidate.
So is struggling Tony Sipp with a 7.04 ERA and six homers allowed in 23 innings. Smith, Lewis and Sipp all have options.
Rafael Perez has done little to distinguish himself, but he’s out of options. The opposition is hitting .358 against him. Hector Ambriz hasn’t been overly productive, but as a Rule 5 pick, he’d have to be offered back to Arizona
As the struggles in a lost season continue, the Indians can only hope to find someone that will stick.
