Indians Claim Scott Maine

The Indians announced that they claimed left-hander Scott Maine off of waivers from the Cubs. The Cubs designated Maine for assignment two days ago to create 40-man roster space for catcher Anthony Recker.

Maine, a sixth round selection in 2007, appeared in 21 games for the Cubs this year, posting a 4.79 ERA with 11.3 K/9 and 5.2 BB/9 in 20 2/3 innings. The 27-year-old has had high strikeout and walk rates throughout his professional career. In parts of six minor league seasons, Maine has a 3.28 ERA with 10.2 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9.

The Indians note that Maine and Cleveland closer Chris Perez played together in college at the University of Miami.

    Not surprising! Maine has really good stuff. It is a command issue with him.

    Did the Tribe have an open roster spot or do we need to DFA someone?
    EDIT: Nevermind, saw the Shelly Duncan post

    Maine is the replacement for Tony Sipp for the 2013 season.

    Was hoping he would go unclaimed. Best of luck to him with the Indians.
