Indians place Pestano on 15-day DL; recall Hagadone

|

CLEVELAND, OH -- The Cleveland Indians announced tonight that the club has placed RHP VINNIE PESTANO on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis. To take Pestano's place on the 25-man roster, the Indians have recalled LHP NICK HAGADONE from Triple-A Columbus. Hagadone (#50) is scheduled to be in uniform for tonight's 4-game series opener against Oakland at Progressive Field.

Hagadone, 27, has made 8 relief appearances for Cleveland this season, posting no record and a 2.45 ERA (2 ER/7.1 IP) during his first stint with the Indians from April 12-30; he was optioned to Columbus following his last outing for the Tribe on April 30 vs. Philadelphia (1.0 IP, 2 BB). Hagadone has also tossed 4.0 scoreless frames across 4 relief appearances for the Clippers.

Pestano, 28, has made 8 relief appearances for Cleveland, posting no record and a 2.25 ERA (2 ER/8.0 IP). His last appearance came in Game 2 of the Indians' April 28 doubleheader on April 28 at Kansas City (1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R-ER, 2 BB).

Pestano will be eligible to be activated on May 16, as Hagadone's recall falls within a 10-day period of his most recent active date on the Major League 25-man roster (April 30). MLB rules stipulate that Pestano's DL placement must be back-dated to May 1, or the day after Hagadone's option to Columbus.
