Vinny Rottino Optioned to AAA Columbus

leave a comment »

Folks, in some ways Vinny Rottino getting optioned back to AAA Columbus from the Cleveland Indians is good as it means Cleveland obviously still wants him.  But of course it has to be frustrating for Rottino to be up in the major leagues for two days, then to be sent back down.

Rottino’s most recent stint in the majors was as follows: he went 0 for 5 with 1 RBI (on a sacrifice fly), striking out once.  His batting average in the majors this year (thus far at any rate) is .158; he has 2 home runs, 6 RBI, has scored 8 runs, stolen 3 bases, taken 6 bases on balls and struck out 10 times.

At any rate, Rottino’s had a good season at AAA and it’s likely that he’ll be called up again in September once rosters expand.  At that point, I hope Rottino will finally get a decent shot to show that he really can hit major league pitching.
