Guardians option reliever James Karinchak to minors after latest ineffective outing

CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Guardians reliever James Karinchak has been optioned to the minor leagues following his latest ineffective outing.

The team made the move on Saturday, a day after the right-hander allowed one run and walked two in the eighth inning of the Guardians' 10-9, 14-inning comeback win over the Houston Astros.

The 27-year-old Karnichak will go to Triple-A Columbus to work on mechanics and doing a better job of controlling the opponent's running game. Before leaving, he got in one last workout at Progressive Field ahead of Saturday's game.
