Indians recalled INF Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus.

Sellers, 28, owns an ugly .199/.278/.301 batting line over 266 plate appearances in the majors. He's a decent defender, but don't look for any fantasy value.
May 20 - 3:10 PM

The Indians are expected to call up Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus.

Nothing official yet from the team. Sellers is hitting .227 with .593 OPS through 37 games in the minors this year and owns a .199/.278/.301 batting line over 266 plate appearances in the majors. He's not a fantasy option.

Indians recalled INF Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus.

Apr 10 - 10:35 AM

Indians optioned INF Justin Sellers to Triple-A Columbus.

A mid-March hip flexor injury damaged the small shot Sellers had of landing an Opening Day roster spot. He'll function as organizational infield depth in 2014.
Mar 27 - 11:55 AM

Justin Sellers will be sidelined for the next few days with a hip flexor injury.

It shouldn't affect his chances at an Opening Day roster spot, but Sellers was already probably a long shot.
Mar 17 - 1:58 PM

Indians acquired SS Justin Sellers from the Dodgers for cash considerations.

Sellers had been designated for assignment in order to clear room for Erisbel Arruebarrena. The 28-year-old has a good glove but is a career .199/.278/.301 hitter over 82 big league games. He's unlikely to crack the Indians' Opening Day roster.
Mar 2 - 11:31 AM

Dodgers designated INF Justin Sellers for assignment.

The room was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly signed Erisbel Arruebarrena. There's a chance that Sellers could rejoin the team on a minor league deal.

Dodgers optioned INF Justin Sellers to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Sellers was up for one day and struck out as a pinch-hitter. He should get another shot later this summer.

Dodgers recalled INF Justin Sellers from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Sellers is batting just .191/.267/.250 in 76 plate appearances with the Dodgers this season. He'll serve as insurance at shortstop with Hanley Ramirez's hamstring ailing once again.

Dodgers optioned SS Justin Sellers to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Dodgers have decided to go with Dee Gordon with Hanley Ramirez out, so Sellers' playing time would have been limited. Tim Federowicz has been called up to take his roster spot.
Wed, May 8, 2013 06:36:00 PM

Justin Sellers went 0-for-2 and committed two errors at shortstop before being removed for a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.

Sellers is in there for his glove, so more nights like this could get him exiled back to the minors very quickly. Manager Don Mattingly indicated that he planned to stick with Sellers for now.

Dodgers recalled INF Justin Sellers from Triple-A Albuquerque.

With Hanley Ramirez (thumb) sidelined, Sellers will open the season as the Dodgers' regular shortstop. A career .204/.283/.323 hitter, he possesses minimal fantasy value.
Sun, Mar 31, 2013 06:26:00 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said starting Justin Sellers at shortstop and Luis Cruz at third base will be "pretty much a regular thing."

The Dodgers were expected to go with Cruz at short and a host of players at third while Hanley Ramirez is out, but they've ultimately decided to keep Cruz at the hot corner. Sellers is a career .204/.283/.323 hitter without much power or speed, so he offers next to nothing for fantasy owners.
