Cleveland Indians Roster Report 2009-09-04

--RHP Chris Perez pitched two more scoreless innings Thursday. Perez, who has not allowed a run since July 7, has pitched 20 consecutive scoreless innings, striking out 24 while walking four and allowing nine hits in that span.

--DH Travis Hafner was not in the lineup Thursday against LHP Nate Robertson. Manager Eric Wedge, giving Hafner periodic days off trying to protect the veteran's two sore shoulders, said Hafner's day off will hopefully allow him to play all three games against right-handed pitchers in a series with Minnesota that begins Friday.

--RHP Fausto Carmona had five of the eight walks issued by Indians pitchers Thursday in a 4-3 loss to Detroit in 10 innings. Cleveland pitchers have walked 487 batters this season, the most in the American League.


RHP Kerry Wood (minor soreness right arm) was not available Aug. 31. He did not pitch Sept. 1-3.

OF Trevor Crowe (strained oblique) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Aug. 17.

RHP Jake Westbrook (Tommy John surgery in June 2008) went on the 60-day disabled list March 26. He began a rehab assignment with Class AA Akron on June 6, but he had a setback and was scratched from his June 17 start. He resumed a throwing program July 10, and he threw a simulated game July 19. He began a new rehab assignment with Akron on Aug. 4 but was scratched from an Aug. 9 start because of elbow soreness. He was subsequently shut down for the year.

RHP Anthony Reyes (right elbow inflammation) went on the 15-day disabled list May 23, and he was transferred to the 60-day DL on May 28. He underwent season-ending surgery June 12.
