Cleveland Indians Pitcher David Huff Recalled From 15-Day DL, Sent To Triple-A Columbus

The Cleveland Indians are off to an impressive 8-5 start to the year behind strong pitching and locked-in hitting, and are close to returning a crucial piece in lefthander David Huff, who was recalled from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Huff, who went down with a strained right hamstring on March 29th, pitched four innings with Double-A Akron before being sent to Columbus. The team is expected to monitor his progress before making the determination on when a final call-up will be necessary.

Huff entered the season in a tight competition for a role in Cleveland's starting rotation, but appears to be the odd man out after a hot start by the duo of Jeanmar Gomez and Josh Tomlin. With the Indians coming out strong and looking like a viable playoff contender early on however, Huff could play a significant role as the season progresses and injuries begin to take their toll.

Huff was in competition for the fifth spot in the Indians rotation, but because of poor results is now a candidate for the bullpen, potentially as a long-reliever. He allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over three innings in his previous start Sunday.

He has started 48 games in his three-year career, registering an ERA over five and a 15-25 record. He has played all three seasons with Cleveland, starting 10 games last year for the Tribe.
