The Cleveland Indians sent left-handed pitcher David Huff to Class AAA Columbus after activating him from the 15-day disabled list Sunday.
Huff had been in Class AA Akron on a rehabilitation assignment. He was placed on the disabled list March 30 after sustaining a strained right hamstring.
He made one start for Akron, throwing four innings and allowing one hit, one walk and striking out three batters.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Derek Lowe was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that won a World Series. Asking him to show you the ring might be a touchy subject today-
“The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of a 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series ring and a gold World Series trophy from Major League Baseball pitcher Derek Lowe’s Fort Myers residence...
When a team is locked in offensively, even when they go quiet for a few innings, you have an overwhelming feeling that they’re just waiting for an opening to burst things wide open. The Indians had 10 hits in the first seven innings of this one with only two runs to show for it. But, in the turning point that was the eighth inning, Jason Kipnis had the biggest hit of the game with...
Cleveland Indians RHP Jeanmar Gomez will start Saturday night at Oakland. Following the game, Gomez will drop his appeal and start serving his five-game suspension.
Gomez was suspended for five games for intentionally hitting Kansas City 3B Mike Moustaskas on April 14.
The Tribe offense was getting plenty of hits, but for the second straight night, they specialized in leaving guys on base. That is, until the eighth inning. The Indians broke this game open in the top of the eighth with a two-run triple by Jason Kipnis and a wild pitch which allowed him to score. Kipnis had four hits and drove in three runs. Four other Indians (Hafner, Donald, Choo...
A few weeks back we wrote about the contest they’re having over at Uni Watch to re-name and re-brand the Cleveland Indians. The first batch of results was posted on Saturday and while one of the concepts is genuinely horrifying, folks have come up with some interesting ideas.
Relatedly, some good work by Frowns regulars (including Kanicki and NeedsFoodBadly) and some other folks...
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jason Kipnis drove in three runs and scored twice, Jeanmar Gomez pitched into the sixth inning for his first win of the season and the Cleveland Indians extended their best road trip in more than 20 years with a 5-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.
Jason Donald had two hits and also scored twice while Travis Hafner and Jack Hannahan added...

The Indians just finished their road trip, where they were an impressive 7-2. On the week, the Tribewas 4-2 to put there overall record at 8-6, good for 3rd in the AL Central. There were lots of good things this week, so let’s get to them! 1. I got on Josh Tomlin pretty good in last week’s MMTT. I said that I was really worried...
Player of the Game
Jason Kipnis won his second Player of the Game of 2012 for his efforts in Oakland, tying him for the team lead with Carlos Santana. Kipnis either knocked in or scored every Indians run on the night (3 RBI, 2 runs scored). The only blemish on his night was a caught stealing which he more than made up for with his 3 singles and triple.
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.
Yesterday, UniWatch had their first post of submissions for their new running contest. Their goal is to find the most creative idea for name changes for two of the more ridiculed Native American-based team names in all of sports: The Cleveland Indians and The Washington Redskins. With 35 entries in all for the Cleveland baseball team alone (the first half were revealed yesterday...
A series against the Kansas City Royals provided just what the Cleveland Indians needed to break out of a slow start to this season and get some momentum going for a successful road trip.
When they return home, the Indians will try again to add to the Royals' misery.
Cleveland will seek its eighth win in 10 games Tuesday night by continuing its recent mastery of the Royals...
