Cardinals sent RHP Jess Todd outright to Triple-A Memphis.

It's a move to clear him off the 40-man roster, as Todd has been at Memphis for a few weeks now. He's pitched pretty well there since being claimed off waivers, posting a 4.50 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 10 innings.

Cardinals claimed RHP Jess Todd off waivers from the Yankees.

Todd was designated for assignment by the Yankees last week. The 25-year-old right-hander was originally drafted by the Cardinals back in 2007, but was shipped to the Indians in 2009 as part of the Mark DeRosa trade.

Yankees designated RHP Jess Todd for assignment.

The Yanks claimed Todd off waivers from the Indians last week but had to get rid of him after only a couple of days to clear a 40-man roster space for reliever Amaury Sanit. Todd, 25, should draw interest from other teams.

Yankees claimed RHP Jess Todd off waivers from Indians.

Todd was designated for assignment by the Tribe last week after posting an 11.00 ERA over his first nine innings at Triple-A Columbus. Part of the Mark DeRosa trade two seasons ago, Todd is still just 25 years old, but is the owner of a 7.62 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 28 1/3 career major-league innings. If he doesn't show the Yankees something at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, his professional career could be at the end of the line.

Indians designated RHP Jess Todd for assignment.

Todd is off to a woeful start at Triple-A Columbus, posting an 11.00 ERA over nine innings. He's got a good minor league track record overall, though, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see someone claim him.

Indians optioned RHP Jess Todd to Triple-A Columbus.

Todd, 24, allowed only one run in 7 2/3 innings this spring, but he was unable to secure a spot in the Tribe's season-opening bullpen. He'll be up at some point.

Indians optioned RHP Jess Todd to Triple-A Columbus.

Todd has been viewed as the "setup man of the future" for closer Chris Perez, but it hasn't really worked out like that. He still has great strikeout potential, and has actually struck out a batter per inning for his major league career, but he's been unlucky on batted balls and hasn't been able to carve a spot in the big-league bullpen. Todd will go work on his control in the minor leagues and is a dropper in fantasy leagues.

Indians recalled RHP Jess Todd from Triple-A Columbus.

Todd yielded five runs over six innings in five appearances with the big club last month. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 3.40 ERA in 40 appearances with the Clippers this season. He'll contribute in middle relief.

Indians optioned RHP Jess Todd to Triple-A Columbus.

Todd struck out nine in six innings for the Indians, but he gave up five runs anyway. He'll get another look next month or in September.

Indians recalled RHP Jess Todd from Triple-A Columbus.

He takes the place of Jeanmar Gomez on the 25-man roster. Todd, 24, was acquired as the player to be named later in the Mark DeRosa trade last season. He has a 2.75 ERA in 34 relief appearances with Triple-A Columbus this season, averaging 10.5 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 39 1/3 innings. He figures to become a mainstay in Cleveland's bullpen before long.

Indians optioned RHP Jess Todd to Triple-A Columbus.

The 23-year-old, acquired last year as the "player to be named later" in the Mark DeRosa-Chris Perez deal, posted a 7.66 ERA over 22 1/3 innings for the Cardinals and Indians last season, his first in the major leagues. He will head back to Triple-A for more seasoning, although he has already showed the ability to dominate that level, producing a 2.04 ERA and 66/13 K/BB ratio in 53 innings for St. Louis' and Cleveland's Triple-A affiliates in 2009.
