Vinny Rottino Called Up by Cleveland Indians

leave a comment »

There hasn’t been much of a press release about this, which is why it took me until today to find it out — but Vinny Rottino was indeed called up by the Cleveland Indians as of Monday evening.

Here’s a link to the only article I’ve found about it:

http://cleveland.indians.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120904&content_id=37876222&notebook_id=37876228&vkey=notebook_cle&c_id=cle

Acta says in this article that “not every single one is going to get a look equally” and that Rottino is likely to be used off the bench.  (Actually, Acta nodded his head at this when the writer of this article, Anthony Odoardi, suggested it.)

But at least Rottino’s back up and is acquiring more major league service time . . . maybe he’ll still get his shot this year.  Because I know if he does get his shot, he will hit and he will do well — I just don’t know how that’s to come about if his new manager isn’t willing to put him into many games.
