Indians place T.J. House and his 13.15 ERA on disabled list

After a strong showing as a rookie last season Indians left-hander T.J. House has been a mess this year with an 0-4 record and 13.15 ERA in four starts and now he’s been placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

House had a 3.35 ERA and 80/22 K/BB ratio in 102 innings last season, but had more walks (12) than strikeouts (7) while allowing 19 runs in 13 innings this year. His velocity was also down a couple miles per hour, so something clearly wasn’t right with the 25-year-old lefty.

Rather than add another pitcher to the roster in House’s place the Indians have called up 26-year-old center fielder Tyler Holt, who could see some action in place of struggling veteran Michael Bourn.
