Kansas City at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Paul Byrd (7-6, 4.81 ERA)
Kansas City: Adam Bernero (No AL record)

The Indians swapped objects of ire today:

Designated RHP Guillermo Mota for Assignment

Recalled IF Ramon Vazquez from Buffalo (AAA)

Joe Inglett left last night's game with a sore foot, so Vazquez gives the Indians some insurance until they figure out what to do with him. If Joe's going to be OK, then Vazquez will probably go back to Buffalo to make room for Jeremy Guthrie on the roster. If Inglett has to go on the DL, then his spot will be taken by Guthrie.

In the meantime, we'll get at least one more look at Vazquez; he's in the lineup, hitting eighth. I know, you can't wait.
