Indians call up former No. 1 pick Zimmer from minors
CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians have called up outfielder Bradley Zimmer, their first-round draft pick in 2014, from Triple-A Columbus.
The 24-year-old Zimmer was hitting .294 with five home runs and 14 RBIs in 33 games with Columbus. The left-handed hitter, considered the top prospect in the Indians organization, will be making his major league debut.
Outfielder Abraham Almonte was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right biceps.
Almonte injured his arm during an at-bat last week. He started in right field Monday but was removed in the fifth inning. Almonte is batting .221 with one homer and six RBIs in 33 games.
The Indians are expected to provide an update Tuesday on right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who was removed from Monday's game because of a strained left pectoral muscle.
