Cleveland Indians right-hander Kazuhito Tadano, who became the 21st Japanese major leaguer in history when he was promoted late last month, was sent down to Triple-A Buffalo to make room on the 25-man roster, club officials announced Friday.

The 24-year-old former Rikkyo University pitcher made three relief appearances since being called up April 24. He made his major league debut three days later in Chicago, but allowed five runs and nine hits with a 9.64 ERA in 4 2/3 innings of work.
