Indians recall OF Gutierrez from Buffalo to replace Blake
June 16, 2006 CBS SportsLine.com wire reports
CLEVELAND -- Outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was recalled by the Cleveland Indians on Friday to take the place of outfielder Casey Blake, placed on the disabled list with a strained muscle in his side.
Gutierrez, acquired in the trade that sent outfielder Milton Bradley to the Los Angeles Dodgers in April 2004, was hitting .288 with four home runs and 22 RBI at Triple-A Buffalo.
Gutierrez was 0-for-1 with two runs scored in seven games for the Indians last season as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement.
Blake had been a bright spot for the struggling Indians, hitting .304 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI. He hurt his left oblique muscle in batting practice Wednesday night and is on the disabled list for the first time.

Big Paper Daddy: Why did the Jags let Fournette just walk?

bnabreaker: Because they're the Jags and they are immune to quality and competence.

Big Paper Daddy: you got 2 recent super bowls!

kfilament: True, true. But man, outside of those 2 seasons it has been BLEAK. On a related note, we are retiring Eli's jersey this weekend here at Ole Miss. And playing LSU. We will probably lose by 40

Big Paper Daddy: Eli's career is hard to figure out; HOF for two Super Bowls but he was BAD outside those two years as well

kfilament: yeah, decidedly average. Didn't help that their GM was a total shitshow in terms of team building. Also, they should have turned the page on Eli about 3 years before they did.
