Sowers sent out
Jeremy Sowers isn’t heading to the Indians’ bullpen. He’s heading back to the Triple-A Columbus rotation.
Sowers was informed after Wednesday’s loss to the White Sox that he’ll be optioned back to Columbus on Thursday, when the Indians activate right-handed reliever Rafael Betancourt from the 15-day disabled list.
Sowers said he was told he’ll start for Columbus and could be brought back into the fold when the Indians need a fifth starter after the break.
For now, it appears Tomo Ohka would get the starting nod Sunday in Detroit.
