Cleveland, OH – The Cleveland Indians have recalled pitcher Corey Kluber from Triple-A Columbus to start Wednesday's game against the New York Yankees.
The move was necessitated when Brett Myers, originally slated to start Wednesday's contest, worked in relief during Tuesday's 14-1 loss to the Yankees after Carlos Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning for hitting New York's Kevin Youkilis with a pitch.
Carrasco, who began the season serving a six-game suspension for intentionally throwing at the head of Kansas City's Billy Butler during July of the 2011 campaign, was optioned to Columbus in a corresponding move. The right-hander was tagged for seven runs in 3 2/3 during Tuesday's assignment, his first in the majors after missing all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Kluber made 12 starts as a rookie for the Indians last season and posted a 2-5 record with a 5.14 earned run average.
