Bullet dodging

Somehow, some way, Ryan Ludwick cleared waivers and was optioned to AAA, the Indians announced today. Mark Shapiro should consider himself very lucky, because nobody expected Ludwick to make it through waivers. It’s too bad the team already activated Coco Crisp, though, considering Crisp was brought back a couple weeks earlier than the team really wanted to. You just hope he doesn’t reinjure the thumb.
