MLB: Texas Rangers at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Luplow is the latest Cleveland Indian to hit the disabled list. After being lifted in Monday’s game, the hope was that it was precautionary, but there appears to be more to the injury than that. He was shut down Tuesday and will be replaced in Cleveland by Greg Allen.

Neither Luplow nor Allen was needed in yesterday’s game because it was PPD due to rain. The Indians and Rangers will play a doubleheader today, with Plesac pitching in the first one and a parade of relievers handling the second. This seems like a questionable decision with a rested bullpen sounding like a nice thing to have against Minnesota.
