The Cleveland Indians will call up four players on Tuesday to expand their active roster size to 33, as T.J. Zuppe of ESPN Cleveland writes. Infielder Cord Phelps, outfielder Vinny Rottino and pitchers David Huff and Scott Maine are being promoted to the big league roster.
Maine was recently claimed off waivers from the Chicago Cubs, while the other three players have spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Columbus.
Phelps, 25, has had another strong year in the minors, hitting .278/.368/.454 with 34 doubles and 16 homers in 577 plate appearances as the second baseman for Columbus. Rottino, 32, has split the year between the Indians' and Mets' Triple-A affiliates, hitting .297/.356/.454 with nine homers in 416 plate appearances.
A former first-round pick with 48 career MLB starts under his belt, Huff has spent the year in the Triple-A rotation, posting a 4.80 ERA with 81 strikeouts and 35 walks over 137 innings. Maine has a 4.79 ERA over 20.2 innings with the Cubs in 2012.
