He was off to a solid start this season in Columbus, batting.294 with five home runs, nine stolen bases and a.532 slugging percentage in 33 games.

The Indians have promoted their top prospect in Bradley Zimmer ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Rays.

In other Indians' roster moves, right-handed pitcher Shawn Armstrong was recalled from Columbus. His flexibility to play three different positions as a switch-hitter boded well for manager Terry Francona's outfield rotations.

Bradley received both balls after the game, and according to Jordan Bastian, the home run ball will go to his mother while the double will go to his dad.

It will be interesting to see how he does at the Major League level.

OF Abraham Almonte was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday due to a strained right biceps. He had also collected 11 doubles and two triples. In 2015, he knocked 16 homers, drove in 63 runs and swiped 44 bags, all personal bests to this point. Third baseman/outfield Yandy Diaz was sent down to Columbus.

In this Prepare for List Off, Bud Shaw and I talked about Zimmer coming to Cleveland and what we think it says about a team that stands second in the AL Central, with the sixth-best record in the American League. He will bat ninth in Cleveland's lineup and start in center field. This has been a fact ever since joining the Indians organization, striking out 43 times this season in 33 games. Right-hander Carlos Frias was designated for assignment.
