Here’s to a great week!
DBack 12, Indians 3
Rough one for Indians’ pitchers. Chih-Wei Hu, Neil Ramirez, and Nick Wittgren all got roughed up in the loss.
His flexibility is a plus. From Mandy Bell:
Plutko made 12 starts for the Tribe last season, but also made five relief appearances. It’s clear he will not be in Cleveland’s rotation when Spring Training concludes in late March, but the 27-year-old is willing to take the ball in any situation in order to make the team.
“I’ll take the ball whenever they need me to,” Plutko said. “I’ve said that, I think, from Day One on May 3 [last year] when I got up the first time. I’ll take the ball any way I possibly can. I don’t want to give it up. I just want to keep the ball in my hand.”
The “slugger” is likely to take his physical this week.
