Indians trade for Rockies' RHP Kevin Slowey

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have acquired right-hander Kevin Slowey from Colorado, a move prompted by Fausto Carmona's arrest in the Dominican Republic.

The Indians sent reliever Zach Putnam and cash to the Rockies for Slowey, who pitched for Minnesota last season and was traded to Colorado on Dec. 6. Slowey split last season between the Twins and Triple-A Rochester. He went 0-8 in the majors and spent time on the disabled list.

Slowey give the Indians an experienced arm and a possible option in the rotation in case Carmona, who has been alleged of using a false identity to play in the U.S., can't pitch. Police say Carmona's real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia

Putnam spent most of last season at Triple-A Columbus, where he went 6-3 with a 3.65 ERA.
