The Cleveland Indians used Wednesday to shore up their Opening Day roster before hosting the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon.

The Tribe have placed injured center fielder Grady Sizemore on the 60-day disabled list. Also going to the DL for s shorter stay is left-hander David Huff, who has a strained right hamstring.

The Indians designated outfielder Thomas Neal for assignment.

Cleveland purchased the contracts of infielder Jose Lopez and reliever Dan Wheeler from Triple-A Columbus.

Sizemore, who re-signed with the team as a free agent during the winter for a reduced contract, underwent back surgery in March due to a spring training drill of fielding ground balls, will not be eligible to come off the DL until June 3.

Indians continue to add pitching depth; adds Wheeler

The Cleveland Indians are making sure that they have plenty of options for their bullpen in 2012.

This time they’ve added free agent reliever Dan Wheeler to a minor league contract.

Wheeler has made 466 relief appearances since the 2005 season, that’s fourth-most in baseball in that time period. The 34-year-old in his career has a 3.88 ERA and 43 career saves in 577 major league games.

Wheeler pitched in 37 games for Boston in 2011 and will be going to Spring Training camp with a chance to win a spot in the Indians bullpen. Last season, he had a 4.83 ERA, missing two weeks in May with a strained calf muscle and the season ended for him on September 8 with soreness in his right forearm.

He was very tough on AL Central Division teams with a 0.84 ERA in 10 games covering 10.2 innings.

Wheeler has also pitched for Tampa Bay, the Mets and Houston.
