Tribe Makes a Pair of Moves at AAA Columbus

The Cleveland Indians have released right-handed pitcher Robinson Tejeda and outrighted right-handed pitcher Dan Wheeler to the AAA Columbus Clippers, according to the team:

Tejeda, 30, last saw Major League action with the Kansas City Royals in 2011, going just 7 innings and pitching at a 6.14 ERA. At AAA Columbus this season, he's seen even less -- just one inning, where he gave up two runs. Tejeda has a career ERA of 4.42 in 442 innings over seven pro seasons. He signed a minor league contract with the Indians this off-season.

Wheeler, 34, will join the Clippers after seeing twelve innings and racking up a 8.76 ERA this season. He was with the Boston Red Sox last season and pitched nearly 50 innings of 4.38 ERA relief. Wheeler has 13 seasons of pro experience across five organizations, seven of which were with the Tampa Rays.
