Indians designated LHP T.J. House for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Adam Plutko on the 40-man roster. House had some momentum after a promising debut with the Indians in 2014, but he dealt with shoulder problems last year and struggled in Triple-A this year. He's still just 26 years old, so someone could take a chance on him.
Sep 20 - 2:51 PM

Indians optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus.

House has allowed six hits in 2 2/3 innings (four appearances) this season at the major league level. Jeff Manship was activated off the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

Indians recalled LHP T.J. House from Triple-A Columbus.

The 26-year-old southpaw will provide a fresh arm with the ability to work multiple innings out of the Indians bullpen. He owns a 3.38 ERA, 2.25 WHIP and 2/0 K/BB ratio in 2 2/3 innings with the big league club this season.
Aug 6 - 10:33 AM

Indians optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus.

Utility infielder Erik Gonzalez will take his spot on the active roster. House allowed one run over 2 2/3 innings during his week-long stay in Cleveland. The 26-year-old began the year in Columbus' starting rotation but has been used exclusively out of the bullpen since early June.

Indians recalled LHP T.J. House from Triple-A Columbus.

House, 26, owns a 4.45 ERA and 42/37 K/BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings over 12 starts and seven relief appearances in Triple-A this season. He'll provide a fresh arm in Cleveland's bullpen.
Jul 4 - 4:10 PM

Indians optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus.

House tossed four scoreless innings Sunday versus the Mariners, but his spring ERA still sits at 9.53. The left-hander will be emergency rotation depth for the Indians in 2016. He holds a 4.46 career major league ERA.
Mar 21 - 1:15 PM

T.J. House tossed four innings of scoreless ball in the Indians' win over the Mariners on Sunday.

It was a nice recovery outing four House, who got worked for four earned runs in 1 2/3 innings last week against the Padres. The left-hander missed most of the 2015 season with shoulder troubles and isn't a real fit right right now for the Indians' roster, but he'll likely see action in the majors at some point in 2016.
Mar 20 - 6:48 PM

Indians activated LHP T.J. House from the 60-day disabled list.

He's now back on the 40-man roster. House missed most of 2015 with shoulder issues but has been pitching in the Arizona Fall League and should enter spring training without limitations, provided he doesn't have a setback.

T.J. House (shoulder) tossed a perfect inning in his first Arizona Fall League appearance last Thursday.

House missed most of the season with shoulder issues and there was some worry that he might need to have surgery, but that he's participating in the AFL obviously means he's opted for the non-surgical route. The left-hander entered 2015 with plenty of appeal, but he'll need to show he's healthy and even then seems likely to begin 2016 in the minors.

T.J. House could undergo surgery on his left shoulder over the winter.

House has been sidelined since June 5 with a nagging shoulder issue. It's unclear at this point what kind of operation he might require or if it could potentially affect his availability for the start of next season.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 09:26:00 PM

Indians transferred LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It frees up a 40-man roster spot. House is done for the season with a shoulder injury.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 03:47:00 PM

Indians rescinded the option of LHP T.J. House, placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 1 with left shoulder inflammation.

By rescinding the option, the Indians will maintain an additional year of team control over House, who will still have one option year remaining. He has still yet to resume a throwing program.

T.J. House (shoulder) has yet to resume a throwing program.

House has spent much of the season battling a shoulder issue and only recently began rehabbing the injury at the Indians' spring training complex. Obviously, he's a poor bet to contribute anything the rest of the season.
Wed, Aug 12, 2015 09:04:00 AM

T.J. House (shoulder) will be shut down for two weeks before resuming a throwing program.

A second opinion confirmed that House is dealing with tendinitis in his left shoulder. The southpaw hasn't appeared in a game in a month and it sounds like it will be a while before he's ready for game action again.
