CLEVELAND (92.3 the Fan) – The Indians have recalled RHP Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus, optioning OF Abraham Almonte to Columbus in a corresponding move.

The Indians used their entire bullpen in Tuesday’s 11-inning win over the Angels, and needed another arm after using Andrew Miller and Cody Allen for consecutive nights.

Armstrong has allowed nine runs over 19 innings with the big league club this season.

Almonte is slashing .244/.331/.407 over 140 plate appearances.
