A year ago, Cliff Lee was a September call-up. Tonight he won his 20th game.
I cannot guarantee similar success for the people listed below, but, nonetheless, I present to you the likely list of callups tomorrow, courtesy of Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News:
2B Josh Barfield, 1B Mike Aubrey, RHPs Brian Slocum, Tom Mastny and John Meloan, LHPs Aaron Laffey and Rich Rundles.
I’m particularly interested to see what Meloan brings to the table. Still not sure if the Indians will go with a six-man rotation that includes Laffey, as the Tribe’s upcoming probables beyond the Chicago series are TBD.
And as reported on the site, Travis Hafner will not be activated Tuesday. He wasn’t ready to play every day in Triple-A, and he’s not ready to play every day up here.
