CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Indians continued their roster shuffling on Sunday, as the team called back up to the Major League roster relief pitcher Scott Barnes.

With relief pitcher Vinnie Pestano having issues with his elbow, the team needs another arm in the pen, the reason for the call-up for Barnes, who was part of the roster last weekend during the doubleheader with the Royals in KC.

With Barnes up, the team designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment. The move to DFA Carrera comes after he joined the Indians just three days ago after he was let go by the Phillies.

Barnes has spent most of the season at Triple-A Columbus where he has gone 2-0 w/a 3.27 ERA in 8 relief outings (9.2IP, 8H, 4R/ER, 5BB, 10K, .250AVG) and has limited left-handed batters to a .222 (2-9) average against.

Over his last 4 outings since April 20 he has an ERA of 1.93 (4.2IP, 3H, 1R/ER, 6K). He was with the Indians on April 28 as the 26th-man for that day’s doubleheader and appeared in the day game (1.0IP, 1H, 2R/ER, HR, BB).
