The Cleveland Indians have sent their left handed relief pitcher Ross Detweiler to their AAA minor league team the Columbus Clippers on Wednesday. Detweiler who had pitched for the Texas Rangers and the Atlanta Braves during the 2015 Major League Baseball season had signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians on December 22, 2015. Detweiler made the Indians roster at the start of the 2016 Major League Baseball season but was designated for assignment by the Indians on April 29, 2016 after pitched in seven games as a relief pitcher with a record of no wins and no losses but with an earned run average of 5.79. Detweiler decided to accept the assignment to pitch for the Clippers since there was no other team in the Major Leagues that wanted his services. It remains to be seen if Detweiler will remain with the Indians minor league team for the remainder of the 2016 baseball season or will he called up by the team later this year.

He's hanging on by whatever means. If he pitches well in the minors, he can get back up to the bigs.
