Josh Barfield Sent Down for Aaron Laffey

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IApril 15, 2009

The Indians' anemic offense lost its pinch runner today, as infielder Josh Barfield was sent down for new fifth starter Aaron Laffey per WTAM. This is a bit of a surprise, as the Tribe will now be carrying 13 pitchers.

I guess the position flexibility of the various members of the team will come in handy, as J-Barf never even got a start in his week with the team. Apparently Tony Graffanino is a better guy to have glued to the bench.

I expect a good start from Laffey tomorrow for no other reason than this team is due. Also, don't be surprised to see Matt Laporta in an Indians uniform in the next few weeks, as he is already hitting 8-16 and may be just the guy to help spark this slumping offense.
