Thus far in his brief time with the Indians, Andy Marte has been a victim of circumstances. A year…
Marte, Santos Receive Weekly Awards
Marte entered the week hitting only .214 at Buffalo. He went on the Indians' disabled list in late April with a strained hamstring and was sent to Buffalo on an injury rehab assignment. A few days after being activated to the Cleveland roster, the Indians sent him back to Buffalo to work on his hitting stroke.
Santos, 24, who has spent most of this season pitching in relief at Akron, made two fine starts last week. In 10 innings overall, he went 1-0 with five strikeouts and an 0.90 ERA.
In three games since being moved to the starting rotation May 30th, Santos is 1-1 with a 1.84 ERA. Overall, he's 4-2 with a 3.45 ERA for the season.
Last week, right-hander Jeanmar Gomez of the Lake County Captains earned pitcher of the week honors in the Class A South Atlantic League.
In two games, he went 2-0 and didn't allow a run in 13 innings. He gave up eight hits and two walks while striking out seven. Those two performances lowered the Venezuelan's ERA from 7.12 to 5.46 for the season.
For the week ending June 3, he limited opposing hitters to a .174 (8-for-46) batting average.
The Indians made several moves throughout the farm system over the weekend.
On Friday, veteran minor-league catcher Javier Herrera was traded to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named. He was assigned to Harrisburg of the Class AA Eastern League. Taking his place on the Akron Aeros' roster was catcher Armando Camacaro, who was reinstated from the disabled list.
Saturday was a very busy day:
Outfielder Shin-Soo Choo was placed on Buffalo's DL with left elbow inflammation; outfielder Jon Van Every was promoted from Akron to take Choo's roster spot.
Left-hander Eric Dubose, formerly of the Baltimore Orioles, was signed to a minor-league contract at Buffalo. He started Sunday and won, allowing one run and five hits over five innings, striking out five.
First baseman Michael Aubrey, who had hit .400 (20-for-50) at Class A Kinston, was promoted to Akron, while right-hander Luis Valdez was moved up from Class A Lake County to the Aeros.
Right-hander Josh Tomlin was sent down to Lake County from Kinston.
On Sunday, the Indians recalled right-hander Matt Miller from Buffalo and optioned lefty Jeremy Sowers to the Bisons. Miller saw immediate action with the Indians, giving up the game-winning hit in the 12th inning in a 1-0 loss in Cincinnati.
