  • Indians call up top OF prospect Bradley Zimmer from Triple-A

Zimmer was hitting.294 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 33 games with Columbus.

This move also helps with platoon advantages for skipper Terry Francona to play around with.

In three-plus seasons in the Indians' minor-league system, Zimmer (6-5, 220 pounds) owns a.270 batting average with 42 home runs, 171 RBI and 103 steals. The Indians former first round pick in the 2014 draft brings speed to the lineup as well after ranking 5th in steals in the worldwide league with nine. Third baseman/outfield Yandy Diaz was sent down to Columbus. The 27-year-old Dominican is hitting.246 with 12 homers and 76 RBIs in 266 career contests with the Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres and Indians.

The congregation closed the synagogue in 2007 after determining it did not have the $3 million to $4 million needed for repairs. The fire broke out around 7 p.m., and took about two hours to get under control, according to the New York Times .

Zimmer is regarded as a five-tool player who is expected to stick in center at the major-league level. He also has 22 runs scored and 11 doubles.

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.

With outfielder Abraham Almonte being placed on the 10-day disabled list because of a right biceps strain suffered in Monday's 8-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays, the Indians purchased Zimmer's contract from their Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers. In his debut Tuesday night, Zimmer was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Right-hander Carlos Frias was designated for assignment. He started in right field Monday but was removed in the fifth inning.
