BOSTON — Wednesday night’s Indians game at Boston was postponed due to inclement weather; the game has been rescheduled for Monday, August 14.

Earlier Wednesday, the  Indians placed All-Star left-hander Andrew Miller on the disabled list with right knee tendinitis.

One of baseball’s best relievers, Miller pitched in Tuesday night’s 12-10 loss at Fenway Park. He is 4-3 with two saves and a 1.67 ERA in 46 appearances this season.

Miller was acquired at the trading deadline last year from the New York Yankees, and he was instrumental in Cleveland making it to the World Series for the first time since 1997.

He has not been himself lately, walking 10 batters in the past 21 innings. Miller only walked nine batters all last season.

The Indians recalled right-hander Adam Plutko from Triple-A Columbus to take Miller’s spot on the active roster.

Cleveland’s bullpen has been getting a lot of work and the club acquired Joe Smith on Monday to ease the burden on Miller, Bryan Shaw and closer Cody Allen.

Also announced on Wednesday, Josh Tomlin is expected to miss at least six weeks due to a left hamstring strain. He was placed on the disabled list on Monday.
