CLEVELAND — A day after moving ace Shane Bieber to the 60-day Injured List, the Tribe has transferred another starting pitcher to the 60-day IL.
The Tribe transferred Aaron Civale, who has been dealing with a sprained finger, from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL.
The move makes room on the 40-man roster for left-handed pitcher Alex Young, who the Tribe claimed via waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday.
Young, who was born in Westlake, was designated for assignment on July 21.
A second round pick out of Texas Christian University in the 2015 MLB Draft, Young has spent three seasons with the Diamondbacks organization, holding a 11-15 record with a 4.73 ERA over 62 outings with 24 starts.
Young has been optioned to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.
