CLEVELAND, OH-- The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has recalled LHP SCOTT LEWIS from the AA Akron Aeros.

Lewis, 24, began the 2008 season in extended spring training recovering from a strained left lat muscle suffered during spring training. He was then transferred to AA Akron on June 6 where he went 6-2 with a 2.33 ERA (73.1IP, 62H, 22R/19ER, 9BB, 61K) in 13 starts for the Aeros. He was promoted to AAA Buffalo on August 14 and went 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA (24.0IP, 19H, 8R/7ER, 4BB, 21K) in 4 starts at Buffalo. Combined during the regular season at AA Akron and AAA Buffalo he was 8-4 with a 2.40 ERA (97.1IP, 81H, 30R/26ER, 13BB, 82K) in 17 starts.

The Indians 3rd round selection (77th overall) in 2004 from Ohio State University, Lewis was transferred back to AA Akron following the conclusion of the Bisons season and added to Akron’s playoff roster. He started game 1 of the AA Eastern League playoffs on September 3 vs. Bowie and did not receive a decision in Akron’s 6-5 victory (5.2IP, 7H, 3R/ER, BB, 3K). He will be making his Major League debut and will wear #46.

The Indians Major League roster now consists of 32 players—seventeen (17) pitchers, three (3) catchers, seven (7) infielders and five (5) outfielders. The 40-man roster now stands at 39.
