Indians Officially Sign Livingston
As reported here on Thursday, the Indians have officially signed LHP Bobby Livingston (26) as a minor league free agent. He has spent the 2009 season between AA Bowie (6-2, 3.62ERA, 12GS, 69.2IP, 85H, 28ER) & AAA Norfolk (1-0, 1.80ERA, 3GS, 20.0IP, 21H, 4ER) in the Orioles organization. He began his pro career in 2001 in the Mariners organization (4th round pick) and appeared in 13 big league games with the M’s and Reds in 2006-07 (61.1IP, 86H, 43ER, 3-3, 6.31). He will start for Akron on Sunday at Harrisburg.
With his signing, insertion into the rotation, and at Double-A of all places, it really looks like RHP Hector Rondon will be promoted to Triple-A Columbus for his next start.
