The Cleveland Indians announced Monday that they transferred right-handed pitcher Matt Albers to the family medical emergency list.
In five relief appearances this season, Albers is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA.
The club also completed a minor league trade, acquiring catcher Chris Wallace from the Houston Astros for left-hander Eric Berger. Wallace, 24, was the Astros' 16th choice in the 2010 draft out of the University of Houston. He has been assigned to Class AA Akron after appearing in one game for Class AAA Oklahoma City.
Berger started the season on the Akron roster.
