Indians 'Hits': Talbot To The DL, Carrera Called Up; More Moves Imminent

Mitch Talbot, who has struggled mightily over the majority of his eleven starts, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 9) with a lower back sprain, and Ezequiel Carrera has been called up to fill his roster spot in what will be the first of more than one roster move.


Talbot is 2-6 with an ERA of 6.33, and was rocked in his most recent start against the Blue Jays.


Carrera, you might remember, was a hero in his first major league game with a game-winning bunt in his first career at-bat to defeat Cincinnati on May 20. Carrera went 2-for-8 in his limited action with the Tribe.


In other imminent moves:  Fausto Carmona is about set to come back. Throwing a simulated game in Baltimore tonight is Carmona's last hurdle. Fausto might go against the Twins in one game of a Monday doubleheader, and either Zach McAllister or Jeanmar Gomez will likely get the call in the other game.
