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.
