Toronto at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Cliff Lee (NR)
Toronto: Dustin McGowan (7.24 ERA, 5 PRC)

Reinstated LHP Cliff from the 15-Day Disabled List

Recalled LHP Rafael Perez from Buffalo (AAA)

Optioned OF Shin-Soo Choo and OF Ben Francisco to Buffalo (AAA)

These moves allow the Indians to get a longman in the bullpen (Perez has been in Buffalo's rotation), and for Fausto Carmona to stay in the rotation; Fausto will take the place of an injured Jake Westbrook, which bypasses the 10-day waiting period for recalling a recently-optioned player.
