Indians put rookie pitcher Cody Anderson on 15-day DL with strained oblique; Almonte recalled


CLEVELAND — The Indians have placed pitcher on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle on his left side.

The rookie right-hander is 2-3 with a 4.31 ERA in eight starts. He allowed six runs over 2 2-3 innings Friday night against Minnesota. Anderson had an MRI on Saturday that revealed the strain.

Cleveland also called up outfielder and right-hander Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus. Outfielder was optioned to Columbus.

Almonte, acquired from San Diego for left-hander on July 31, was set to start in center field and bat eighth Saturday night. Almonte hit .204 with four RBIs in 31 games with the Padres.

Armstrong was 1-2 with 14 saves and a 2.25 ERA in 40 relief appearances at Columbus.

Holt went 2 for 20 in nine games with the Indians.
