Shaun Marcum SP CLE 3 weeks ago

Marcum was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

After being designated for assignment Tuesday, Marcum cleared waivers and will report to the Triple-A club. He allowed just one run in five innings of relief work in his lone appearance this season and could be in line for a promotion at some point for a spot start or to fill in for an injury in the big league rotation.

Marcum was designated for assignment Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

With Yan Gomes (knee) expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, the Indians need a spot on the 40-man roster for Brett Hayes. Marcum fared well in his only appearance for Cleveland, holding the Tigers to one run over five innings of mop-up work. If he isn't claimed by another team, the 33-year-old righty could eventually be an option to serve as an injury replacement in the big-league rotation.

Marcum is a darkhorse candidate to open the season as a member of the starting rotation but an opt out clause in his contract might tilt things in his favor if the Indians like what they see this spring. T.J. House appears to have the inside track on the fourth spot which would leave Marcum fighting with Danny Salazar, Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin and Bruce Chen for the last spot.
