Ryan Getzlaf Jersey . -- Two late-season wins helped take a bit of the sting of the Toronto Argonauts ugly season from defensive end Ricky Foley.CLEVELAND -- The Indians will be without one of their most valuable arms for at least 10 days. The club placed reliever Vinnie Pestano on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right elbow Monday, a move they contemplated for several days before finally executing. Left-hander Nick Hagadone was recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Cleveland placed Pestano on the DL shortly before the opener of a four-game series against the Oakland Athletics. Manager Terry Francona had expected Pestano to be available to face the As, but the Indians are taking a cautious approach with the right-hander, who has a 2.25 ERA in eight appearances this season. The Indians called the injury right elbow tendinitis, but the 28-year-old Pestano, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2006, said he has been treated foor discomfort in the elbow the past two seasons.dddddddddddd Pestano has not pitched since the second game of a doubleheader against Kansas City on April 28. He gave up two walks in one inning and said his elbow began bothering him following the outing. Pestano was one of the ALs best relievers last season. He went 3-3 with a 2.57 ERA in 70 appearances, mostly as the setup man for All-Star closer Chris Perez. Pestano will be eligible to be activated on May 16, as Hagadones recall falls within a 10-day period of his most recent active date on the 25-man roster. Major League Baseball rules stipulate that Pestanos placement on the DL must be backdated to May 1, or the day after Hagadones option to Columbus. Hagadone had a 2.45 ERA during his first stint with the Indians. ' ' '
