      Indians' Adam Plutko: Inefficient in no-decision

      Adam Plutko gave up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out five through 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Wednesday.Plutko limited the Rangers to one run until the fourth inning, when he quickly allowed two hits and a run before two errors allowed another run to score. The right-hander was removed after 89 pitches after surrendering another extra-base hit, leaving him unable to complete the fifth inning. Plutko had delivered quality starts in his previous two outings, but a 6.68 FIP suggested there was regression coming. Plutko would be lined up to face the Royals on Monday if he stays in the rotation.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Locks up third victory

      Adam Plutko (3-1) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings Friday in a win over the Tigers.Plutko gave up both of his earned runs in the bottom of the second inning on a pair of solo homers, and the Tigers would push across another run in the third on a sacrifice fly. The 27-year-old has now put together quality starts in back-to-back outings, and he'll likely remain in the starting rotation moving forward with Carlos Carrasco out for the foreseeable future.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Bounces back with strong start

      Adam Plutko (2-1) allowed two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and no walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Yankees on Saturday.The 27-year-old yielded just one run on one hit in his 2019 MLB debut, but he gave up seven runs on 12 hits in his next start. After that rough outing, Plutko went back to Triple-A until Saturday. His overall numbers aren't going to be great because it's a small sample size with one horrendous outing, but Plutko has more than held his own in two of his three big-league starts in 2019. He is 2-1 with a 5.19 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 17.1 innings this season. Carlos Carrasco landed on the injured list with an undisclosed blood condition Wednesday, and Plutko probably pitched well enough in this outing to earn another start in his place.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Joining rotation Saturday

      Adam Plutko will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday against the Yankees, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.Plutko will join the big-league rotation over the weekend after Carlos Carrasco was sent to the injured list with an undisclosed blood condition. With the Cleveland Indians dealing with multiple injuries to their starting rotation, Plutko could stick around beyond Saturday's start if he holds his own. In two starts for the big club this season, Plutko has racked up a 6.35 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB in 11.1 innings.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Sent to Triple-A

      Adam Plutko was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.He had success in his first start with the big club, but he gave up seven earned runs on 12 hits (four home runs) in 5.1 innings in Thursday's start against the Rays. It is unclear who will take his spot in the rotation.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Serves up four homers

      Adam Plutko (1-1) took the loss Thursday against the Rays by surrendering seven runs on 12 hits with three strikeouts through 5.1 innings.Plutko took his first loss of the season as he fell victim to the long ball, limiting the damage to a trio of solo shots before Kevin Kiermaier swatted a fatal three-run, inside-the-park homer in the sixth. On the bright side, Plutko didn't walk anyone and managed to punch out three. The right-hander is coming off a solid start in which he allowed just one run after missing the beginning of the season with a right forearm strain, so perhaps this shaky outing was a fluke. Through both games this year, the 27-year-old holds a 6.35 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. He'll get a chance to prove himself again with a Tuesday tilt at Fenway Park.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Strong outing in return

      Adam Plutko (1-0) earned the win Saturday against the Orioles by allowing one run on one hit across six innings. He struck out four and walked two.Plutko missed the beginning of the season with a right forearm strain but showed no rust Saturday as the lone hit he allowed was a solo home run to Trey Mancini. The 27-year-old may have been able to pitch deeper since he finished at 83 pitches, but it makes sense the team would take it slow in his first major-league start of the year. Plutko is set to take the mound again Thursday versus Tampa Bay.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Recalled from Triple-A

      Adam Plutko was recalled from Triple-A Columbus ahead of his start Saturday against the Orioles.He gave up one run on a walk and two hits while striking out four in five innings in his most recent start for the Clippers. His previous outing was a disaster, as he gave up five runs and didn't make it out of the first inning. Plutko could stick in the big-league rotation for the foreseeable future if he can prove to be a serviceable option, and Saturday's matchup is certainly favorable.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Slated to start Saturday

      Adam Plutko will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday against the Orioles, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.With Plutko joining the rotation Saturday, Shane Bieber and Carlos Carrasco will now take the mound Sunday and Monday, respectively. After getting rocked in his first start for the Clippers earlier in May, Pluto allowed one run across five innings his last time out for Columbus. With the big-league staff currently dealing with multiple injuries, Plutko could remain in the rotation for a few turns, assuming he holds his own.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Rocked in return to Columbus

      Adam Plutko (forearm) gave up five runs on two hits and three walks while striking out one in one-third of an inning in his return to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.The right-hander made it through three frames in his final extended spring outing last week, but Plutko could not even record a second out in his first start back at the Triple-A level. He missed the start of the year with a right forearm strain. While the Cleveland Indians are hurting for starters at the big-league level, it doesn't seem like Plutko is a realistic option in the immediate future.
