The Indians announced today that left-handed starting pitcher David Huff was activated from the 15-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Columbus. Huff, 27, went on the DL with a strained right hamstring that occurred on March 29th in Spring Training. Huff was in competition with Jeanmar Gomez and Kevin Slowey for the fifth starter spot prior to the injury, and could have potentially earned a spot in the bullpen as well. In 11 games (10 starts) last season, Huff was 2-6 with a 4.09 ERA, allowing 17 walks, 55 hits, and striking out 36 in 50 2/3 innings. He joins a Columbus rotation that already includes Slowey, Scott Barnes, Zach McAllister, Corey Kluber and Chris Seddon. The Tribe now has two players on the DL in centerfielder Grady Sizemore and starter Carlos Carrasco, both on the 60-day DL.

The Cleveland Indians are on a roll right now, but

They have been playing Seattle, Oakland, and Kansas City. Will they be able to play with the cream of the league: They still have to play Texas, New York, Tampa, and Detroit? The Angels who are coming up soon will be a major test. The Red Sox will not be down forever and the Orioles have gotten off to a good start. We like what we see so far with the Tribe. Time will tell.
