Even in September, Indians need the DL

Posted on: September 1, 2011 11:32 am
 
You never see anyone go on the disabled list on Sept. 1.

There's no need. Major-league rosters expand from 25 to 40. If someone gets hurt, you just call a guy up to replace him.

It's Sept. 1. The Indians just put outfielder Shin-Soo Choo on the DL.

It's actually a procedural move, done so the Indians can bring pitcher Nick Hagadone back to the major leagues without having him spend 10 days in the minor leagues first (there's an exception when you replace a guy on the DL). The Indians say there's actually no change in Choo's prognosis (he has a left oblique strain), and that he never was going to be ready to play before this DL stint ends on Sept. 12.

But even if it's basically meaningless, it sure does feel typical for a team that has seemed to need the DL nearly every day this season. Grady Sizemore has been on and off the DL (and he's still out now). Travis Hafner is on the DL. Michael Brantley is out for the season. And Choo missed a big chunk of the season when he was on the DL earlier this season.

The Indians didn't need to use the DL this time, except that they played 16 innings against the A's on Wednesday night, leaving their bullpen short. But they did use it.

You never see anyone go on the DL on Sept. 1. But if someone was going to do it, it was going to be the Indians.
