Marcum was already announced as the starter Wednesday, so the official move was just a matter of time. He will take the place of T.J. House in the Indians' rotation, but his stay may be limited to House's stay on the disabled list, but a good showing could make a decision tougher.

Marcum will join the Indians on Wednesday to make a start against the White Sox, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Marcum previously made one appearance with the big club earlier this season, giving up one run over a five-inning relief outing back on April 12. He's since been biding him time at Triple-A Columbus, where he's impressed with a 4-0 mark and 1.36 ERA over 33 innings. The Indians will need to clear out a 40-man spot for Marcum, but he could stick around as the team's fifth starter until T.J. House (shoulder) returns from the DL.

Marcum may be a candidate to start Saturday's game against the Twins, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

With T.J. House (shoulder) both ineffective and injured, the Indians will likely turn to Marcum, Bruce Chen or Zach McAllister, the last of whom is currently pitching out of the big-league bullpen. Marcum owns a 3-0 record and 2.00 ERA over three starts for Triple-A Columbus this season, but he only has 10 strikeouts in 18 innings.

After being designated for assignment Tuesday, Marcum cleared waivers and will report to the Triple-A club.

Marcum was designated for assignment Tuesday, 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.
