The Indians found another guy who can fill in at the back of the rotation when they traded prospect Zach Putnam to the Rockies for Kevin Slowey. Putnam had worked in the Indians organization for a few years now and finally made his debut in 2011, getting most of his time out of the pen.
Slowey had an awful season for the Twins last year so you wondering what the Indians were thinking (Putnam made the Indians top ten prospect list). He was 0-8 with a 6.67 ERA but that was for an awful Twins team. He looks like a below average pitcher who managed to win his share of ball games despite some mediocre stats. His best season was 2008 when he threw 160 1/3 innings with an ERA of 3.99 and a 1.154 WHIP. He’s a typical Twins pitcher. Not a ton of strikeouts but a low walk rate.
