Indians purchased the contract of LHP Michael Roth from Triple-A Columbus.

Roth, who previously pitched in the majors with the Angels, had a 4.19 ERA and 70/37 K/BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. The 25-year-old southpaw will provide some bullpen depth for Cleveland.
Jul 28 - 3:13 PM

Indians reassigned LHP Michael Roth, SS Francisco Lindor, C Adam Moore, RHP Dustin Molleken, INF Destin Hood, and RHP Bryan Price to minor league camp.

Roth pitched pretty well this spring, but he was never really in the running for an Opening Day bullpen spot. He'll be emergency lefty relief depth for the Tribe.

Indians signed LHP Michael Roth to a minor league contract.

No official word from the team yet, but he'll presumably receive an invitation to spring training. Roth elected free agency after being designated for assignment by the Angels in Novemeber. The 24-year-old owns a 7.79 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 32 1/3 career major league innings.
Jan 6 - 12:51 PM

Michael Roth has elected to become a free agent.

Roth was designated for assignment last week but had the option to test the open market and took it. The 24-year-old left-hander has a rough 7.79 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 32 1/3 career major league innings.

Angels recalled LHP Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas.

Roth owns a shiny 2.62 ERA in 140 2/3 innings (22 starts) this year at Double-A, but he has struggled in a relief role at the big league level and holds no fantasy value.

Angels recalled LHP Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas.

Angels sent LHP Michael Roth outright to Double-A Arkansas.

Thu, May 1, 2014 01:47:00 PM

The 24-year-old southpaw appeared in 15 games out of the bullpen for the Angels in 2013, compiling a 7.20 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 20 innings. He shouldn't have any difficulty finding another squad willing to take a chance on him.

Michael Roth will undergo surgery to have cyst removed from his left thumb.

It's a minor procedure and won't affect his ability to start spring training on time. Roth will compete for a bullpen job during Cactus League play.
