Mastny up, Aubrey down

The Indians sent Tom Mastny down to Triple-A Buffalo last month because he wasn’t getting any work in their bullpen. Today, he’s coming back, after allowing just one earned run over his last nine innings for the Bisons.

First baseman Michael Aubrey has been sent back to Buffalo after batting .185 (5-for-27) with two homers and two RBIs in nine games up here. He started out hot with two homers in his first two starts and started to steal at-bats from Ryan Garko, but Aubrey quickly cooled.
