Roster trimmed; Sizemore, Lee honored
The Indians made a couple more 40-man moves today, outrighting RHP Brian Slocum to Triple-A Columbus and losing RHP Bryan Bullington off outright waivers to the Blue Jays.
The 40-man now stands at 36, not counting RHP Jake Westbrook and RHP Scott Elarton, who are on the 60-day DL and do not factor into the 40-man total.
In other news, Grady Sizemore and Cliff Lee have been named to the Sporting News All-Star Team, which was voted on by 41 general managers and assistant GMs. It is the first time since 2001 that the Indians have placed more than one player on TSN’s All-Star Team (Juan Gonzalez and Jim Thome).
