Morimando tossed seven shutout innings Thursday, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out six for Triple-A Columbus.

The left-hander missed out on an Opening Day job with the Indians, then proceeded to pitch terribly at Columbus to open the year. Morimando looks back on track now, though. Over his last two starts, the 24-year-old has logged 13 frames without giving up an earned run while striking out 13. Morimando is a candidate to join the Indians bullpen later in the 2017 campaign.
