The Indians made their last September callup Tuesday, and it’s a surprising one.
The Tribe purchased the contract of infielder Niuman Romero from Triple-A Columbus, presumably to provide added depth up the middle.
The switch-hitting Romero, 24, hit a combined .240 with 14 doubles, a triple, a homer, 35 RBIs and 47 runs scored in 115 games at Double-A Akron and Columbus.
Romero saw time at all four infield spots with the Clippers, including 58 games at short, eight at third, eight at second and seven at first.
Also, in an annual rite of September, Clippers manager Torey Lovullo will come up to join the coaching staff for the stretch run.
Meanwhile, Jordan Brown won the International League batting title with a .336 average, and he’s going home. Figure that one out.
The active roster is now at 32 and the 40-man is now at 39.
