Ryan Raburn, a Cleveland outfielder, came in to pitch the ninth inning against Detroit in a 10-2 blowout Thursday. Raburn, unlike Twins’ utility man Jamey Carroll, managed to throw some heat and almost broke into the 90s with his fastball. Throwing only 14 pitches and producing a 1-2-3 inning for the Indians may have earned Raburn a new spot in the Indians’ relief rotation in the future.

Bryan Pena hit a ground ball to first and Raburn was there to cover the bag perfectly.
