Morimando was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Morimando entered camp with a legitimate shot to make the Tribe bullpen, but he'll head back to the minors after struggling over four Cactus Leagues appearances. The left-hander allowed six runs on 12 hits and two walks while striking out 11 over 8.2 innings this spring. Morimando has started 132 games in the minors since 2012, and he'll continue providing the Tribe with rotation depth from Columbus.
