Indians claim Lindsay off waivers from Yanks

Indians claim Lindsay off waivers from Yanks

|
DETROIT -- The Indians found something to do with the open roster spot that was bound to be created by Grady Sizemore's move to the 60-day disabled list. They're taking a chance on right-hander Shane Lindsay.

The Tribe claimed Lindsay off waivers from the Yankees on Tuesday and optioned him to Class A Kinston. Lindsay will actually head to the Tribe's complex in Goodyear, Ariz., for extended spring, as he hasn't pitched in several weeks.

Lindsay, 25, began this season with Triple-A Colorado Springs after being optioned out of the Rockies' big league camp in mid-March. He was 0-1 with a 6.59 ERA in 14 appearances for the Sky Sox. The Yankees claimed him on May 14 after he was removed from the Rockies' 40-man roster, and he hadn't pitched in a game in New York's system.

A Melbourne, Australia, native, Lindsay has made 100 career appearances in the Minors, including 41 starts. He is 18-13 with a 3.48 ERA. He has never pitched in the Majors.
