Phelps hit .276 with 82 runs scored, 34 doubles, 3 triples, 16 home runs and 62 RBI's in 135 games for the Columbus Clippers in 2012.  He was named the second baseman on the International League postseason all-star team.   

Rottino was claimed on outright waivers from the New York Mets on June 27 and split the remainder of the season between Columbus and Cleveland. With the Clippers, he hit .291 with 18 doubles, 1 triple, 5 homers and 41 RBI's in 60 games.  He was with the Indians from August 1-3, appearing in 2 games in left field.
