The Indians placed outfielder Shin-Soo Choo on the 15-day Disabled List with a left oblique strain, retroactive to August 28. The team also recalled pitchers Corey Kluber and Nick Hagadone from AAA Columbus.
Kluber, 25, has spent the entire season at Columbus where he has gone 7-10 with a 5.65 ERA in 26 starts. He is third in the International League in strikeouts (140), eighth in innings pitched (146.2) and tied for third in starts (26). Kluber was acquired from San Diego last July 31 in a three-team trade that sent RHP Jake Westbrook to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Hagadone, 25, has split the season between AA Akron and AAA Columbus where he has gone a combined 6-4 with a 2.79 ERA in 46 relief appearances. He owns an ERA of just 1.91 ERA over his last 22 appearances since June 23 for the Clippers. Overall at Columbus he was 4-3 with a 3.35 ERA in 34 outings. Hagadone was acquired in a trade with the Boston Red Sox for Victor Martinez.
