Former Michigan Pitcher-DH Zach Putnam has been called up by the Indians. Putnam, you may recall, was the star of the Michigan team that eliminated heavily favored Vanderbilt a couple of years ago. Putnam then had a no-hitter into the 9th inning in the opener of the Super Regional, but the first hit of the game led to the only run and Oregon State beat Michigan and went on to win the NCAAs.
