The Cleveland Indians today announced they have recalled CA LOU MARSON from AAA Columbus. Marson will wear #30 and becomes the 31st member of the Major League roster.

Marson, 23, has split most of the 2009 season at the Triple A level between AAA Lehigh Valley & AAA Columbus in the International League where he has hit at a combined .277 (87-314) with 18 doubles, 2HR & 33 RBI in 91 games (42RS, 40 walks, .361 on-base%). Lou was acquired along with 4 others from the Philadelphia Phillies on July 29. With Columbus he hit .243 (25-103) in 28 games and he also appeared in 7 games with the Philadelphia Phillies earlier in the season (April 11-May 1, .235, 4-for-17). Prior to the 2009 season, Marson was ranked as the 3rd best prospect in the Philadelphia organization and the 66th overall prospect in baseball by Baseball America after originally being selected in the 4th round by Philadelphia in the 2004 June Draft.

Marson is in the lineup starting at catcher tonight vs. Texas at 6:05PM ET with former Phillies farmhand RHP Carlos Carrasco making his second big league start.
