Newsom To Akron, Finocchi Released
Nothing official at the moment, but with the Indians signing RHP Luis Vizcaino today he is expected to either join the Indians in Cleveland or go to Triple-A Columbus. With that, a roster spot needed to be opened up in Columbus, whether it is Vizcaino going there or whoever is optioned out from Cleveland going there. I am hearing the Indians cleared roster room in Columbus by sending RHP Randy Newsom to Double-A Akron and releasing RHP Michael Finocchi.
An official transaction should be posted in the next 24-48 hours.
