He hurt the knee on Sunday when he ran to the third base line to field a bunt and it buckled on him when he turned to throw the ball to first. No official word as of yet...

We'd have days like that in Ohio maybe once or twice a year where you'd walk...

The thought was that the Indians were keeping him out of the game in order to call him up shortly after the start of the second half.
That appears to all but be a formality at this point with the announcement...

Sailing with the Clippers is a weekly Monday morning installment that explores the week that was for Triple-A Columbus.
