Shane Lindsay Clears Waivers

MONDAY: The Indians assigned Lindsay to AA, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via Twitter).

FRIDAY: The Indians have designated Shane Lindsay for assignment, according to's Anthony Castrovince (via Twitter).  The move was made in order to clear room for Jayson Nix, who was picked up off of waivers earlier this afternoon.

Lindsay, 25, was claimed off of waivers from the Yankees on the first of the month, two weeks after the Yanks claimed him from the Rockies.  In 13.2 innings for Colorado's Triple A affiliate this year, the righthander posted a 6.59 ERA with 19 Ks and 17 walks.  Baseball America's Prospect Handbook questioned if the Australian could ever stay healthy enough to capitalize on his raw ability.

Good luck to Shane Lindsay, but this is a good move. The last thing the Indians need in their farm system is a guy that walks the park. I think they’ve got that covered.
