The Cleveland Baseball Club has made four roster moves in order to cut the Major League roster down to 28 players.
Cleveland made four roster moves Thursday in order to get down to 28 players on their Major League roster. Greg Allen and Daniel Johnson were optioned to the Alternate Training Site Delino DeShields was activated, and Christian Arroyo was designated for assignment.
The moves in the outfield should hopefully provide a bit more clarity in regards to playing time. Cleveland had a ton of outfielders and none of them have necessarily been all that impressive. Taking Allen and Johnson out of the mix and inserting DeShields may help Cleveland find a solution in the outfield for the rest of the season. Worst case scenario is that more moves are made a later date that includes bringing back one or possibly both Allen and Johnson.
Cleveland takes on Cincinnati Thursday at 6:10 P.M.
