Off the Record (OTR)

Here comes Bradley Zimmer!

The Cleveland Indians needed to make a roster move after Abraham Almonte fell ill with a biceps injury. So, what are they going to do? Oh, I don’t know…call up your top prospect!

And that’s what they did. The Indians have purchased the contract of Bradley Zimmer from their Triple-A affiliate in Columbus.

Zimmer has been hitting .294 this year with five home runs. Really nice numbers, but hardly mashing in a way that would make a general manager say “we have to get this kid up pronto!”

It will be interesting to see how he does at the Major League level. He still has strikeout issues so we’ll have to see what kind of approach he has at the plate.
