Chamberlain declined his Triple-A assignment and is now a free agent, Chris Assenheimer of the Chronicle-Telegram reports. Chamberlain pitched 20 innings for Cleveland this season and posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. His designation was bit of a surprise after having a good season, but he'll likely find a new team before long.
Chamberlain was designated for assignment by the Indians on Monday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. In a flurry of roster moves, Cleveland DFA'd both Chamberlain and lefty specialist Tom Gorzelanny, calling up relievers Mike Clevinger and T.J. House to take their respective spots on the 40-man roster. It's a bit surprising to see Chamberlain let go in this manner, as he had accumulated a 2.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 20 frames of middle relief. He had pitched in two of the last three games, however, so the need for a fresh arm prevailed.
Chamberlain (ribs) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday. Chamberlain returns to the Indians almost immediately after he was eligible to come off the disabled list. He suffered an intercostal strain in late May that landed him on the shelf, but prior to that injury, the veteran was enjoying a resurgent 2016 campaign. In 14 appearances, Chamberlain had posted a 1.93 ERA with a microscopic .86 WHIP before suffering the injury. He'll rejoin the Indians' bullpen Wednesday while Cody Anderson will be sent back down to Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.
Chamberlain (ribs) won't be activated from the 15-day DL until Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Danny Salazar will be missing his start Tuesday due to shoulder fatigue, forcing the Indians to keep Cody Anderson on the roster to make the spot start. Hence, Chamberlain will need to wait another day to return to the Cleveland bullpen.
Chamberlain (ribs) will be activated from the 15-day DL on Monday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Chamberlain made it through Saturday's simulated game without any apparent setbacks, so he's received clearance from team doctors to rejoin the big club. The right-hander had a 1.93 ERA and 0.85 WHIP over 14 innings prior to hitting the DL.
