Crockett was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, MLB.com reports.

Crockett was sent back to the minors as part of a flurry of moves during Saturday's doubleheader with the Twins. Since Crockett represented the Tribe's most expendable reliever, he was optioned prior to Game 1 in order to open up a spot on the 25-man roster for pitcher Ryan Merritt, who started that contest. Merritt was then optioned to Triple-A after his start to clear a spot for third baseman Giovanny Urshela, who entered the lineup in the nightcap.
