It Just Never Stops...Michael Brantley And Josh Tomlin To The 15-Day Disabled List

It just never seems to stop for the Indians, as injury after injury continue to derail the squad that so desperately needs some good health to have a chance in the final five weeks of the season.

Michael Brantley and Josh Tomlin have both been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Brantley has inflammation in his right wrist that has bothered him for much of August, while Tomlin has right elbow soreness

↵

Jim Thome, newly-acquired from the Twins, will fill one of the roster spots vacated, and left-handed pitcher Nick Hagadone will take the other.

Hagadone has a cumulative record of 6-4 with a 2.65 ERA in 2011 for the Akron Aeros and the Columbus Clippers. The first time Hagadone gets into a game will be his major league debut.
