Cleveland Indians call up top prospect Bradley Zimmer

Cleveland Indians call up top prospect Bradley Zimmer”

In an ideal world, the Indians might have their center fielder of the future right here in the present.

Through 33 games for the Clippers this season, Zimmer hit.294 with.371 on-base and.532 slugging percentages. Zimmer will make his major league debut tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays at Progressive Field, batting ninth and playing center field. It was Dickerson's third home run against the Indians in two games, and it put the Indians in an early 4-0 hole. Winners of their last two, Cleveland will hope Zimmer's arrival helps them start building some momentum.

The Cleveland Indians have called up outfielder Bradley Zimmer, their first-round draft pick in 2014, from Triple-A Columbus. He smacked 337 hits in 1,246 at-bats with 74 doubles, 14 triples and 42 home runs with 171 runs batted in, 218 runs scored and 167 walks drawn.

Right-hander Shawn Armstrong was recalled from Columbus and infielder/outfielder Yandy Diaz was optioned to Triple-A. "Honestly, it's hard to put into words what that moment was", Zimmer said.

It will be interesting to see how he does at the Major League level. This has been a fact ever since joining the Indians organization, striking out 43 times this season in 33 games.

The team also officially placed OF Abraham Almonte on the ten day disabled list. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco was removed from Monday's game because of a strained left pectoral muscle and will have his next start pushed back to May 23 in Cincinnati.
