Indians' Adam Plutko: Heads to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko made a relief appearance in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Tigers, working around two base hits to toss a scoreless ninth inning.

Plutko's previous five outings had come as a starter, with the right-hander turning in a 6.26 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 27.1 innings during that stretch. While there hasn't been any formal announcement of Plutko's removal from the rotation, that appears to be a safe conclusion to draw since he hasn't started since Sept. 8. Moreover, Josh Tomlin was summoned from the bullpen to make a spot start over the weekend and is scheduled to take the hill again Thursday against the White Sox, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. With Tomlin now looking like the Tribe's new No. 5 starter, expect Plutko to fill a mop-up role in relief over the final two weeks of the regular season.

Indians' Adam Plutko: To join rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko will be called up Saturday to start against the Orioles, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Plutko will take the place of Trevor Bauer, who hit the disabled list Tuesday with a small stress fracture in his right fibula. Bauer's recovery timeline remains unclear, so it's hard to say how many starts Plutko will make. His 4.75 ERA through 41.2 innings this season is mediocre at best, and he's struck out just 16.9 percent of batters while recording a very low 28 percent groundball rate. Plutko will at least have an easy assignment against the Orioles, though if he gets a second turn that will likely come against the Red Sox.

Indians' Adam Plutko: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Plutko was up for just two days, tossing one scoreless inning Sunday against the Tigers. He has a 4.75 ERA in 41.2 innings as a swingman this season, though his 16.9 percent strikeout rate and 28 percent groundball rate suggest that number could be worse. Greg Allen was called up from Columbus in a corresponding move.

Indians' Adam Plutko: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko will be promoted from Triple-A Columbus prior to Saturday's tilt against the Tigers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Plutko is set to join the ballclub to replace Tyler Naquin (hip), who's headed to the disabled list. Plutko figures to serve as a starter or long reliever during his stint in the majors, as he's posted a 4.87 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 29 strikeouts over 40.2 innings this season with Cleveland.

Indians' Adam Plutko: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko will be optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Plutko will be cast off the active roster in order to make room for the recently acquired Brad Hand and Adam Cimber in the Indians' bullpen. Through eight games (six starts) with the club this season, Plutko has logged a 4.87 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Look for him to continue starting games with Triple-A Columbus while he's back in the minor leagues.
