I don’t really understand what the #Indians are doing with these pitcher roster moves today. It’s been reported that righty reliever Mark Lowe would be called up. To do that though, he’d have to get added to the 40-man roster, so someone (most likely Carasco or Axeford) would have to get DFA’d first. They’ve handcuffed themselves with all of the moves they’ve made over the last nine days. Salazar, House, and Lee are not options to call up now because of the ten day rule. They should just recall one of Barnes, Wood, Hagadone, or Pestano. I’d go with Wood, they don’t need another lefty, especially one that can’t get righties out. Axeford still has an option and needs to work on finding the strike zone, which he isn’t getting chances to do up with the big club. Send him down over Crocket. Crocket has actually been really dependable so far. He shouldn’t be sent down just because of the mismanaged bullpen like Lee was earlier this week. Pestano has made some strides towards the right direction at Columbus. I’m not sure how Wood has done, but hopefully the staff down there can fix Axeford, too. I’d be surprised if the Indians are ready to just cut their loses with Axeford & eat what’s left of his deal, that’s not their style. For tomorrow’s game they should use Carasco in a spot start. Depending on how hard the Orioles make him work, he could go anywhere from 4-6 innings. He’s terrible and unreliable, and Francona clearly has no faith in him at all, but he was in the opening day rotation! Making one fill in start shouldn’t be out of the question for him and plus, using him will keep them from having to make another roster move tomorrow. You do of course run the risk of him imploding out there and burning thru the bullpen yet again.

I’d never seen a rasen bag just explode like it did to AJ Burnett on Opening Day like this. It made me laugh.
