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.

Baseball is Back! Reds, Indians tie 6-6; Rolen gets 2 hits for Cincinnati


Scott Rolen

Drew Stubbs

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen’s shoulder was no problem as he went 2 for 2 in his return from shoulder surgery which caused him to miss the final two months of last season in the team’s 6-6, nine-inning tie Saturday afternoon in the exhibition opener.

A seven-time All-Star, the 36-year-old Rolen did not play after July 20, 2011 and had arthroscopic surgery August 3 to remove bone spurs and fragments from a joint in his left shoulder.

Cleveland built a 4-0 lead in the first three innings against Reds starter Mike Leake and Ron Mahay. However, the Reds tied the game with four runs in the fourth off Frank Herrman.

The Reds started the inning against Herrman with a double. Jay Bruce knocked in an RBI infield single, Drew Stubbs banged out a two-run double and Devin Mesoraco tied it with a single.

Neftali Soto homered in the fifth inning against Robinson Tejada for a 5-4 Reds lead.

Todd Frazier, who can play all infield positions and LF & RF, cracked a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth off Chen Lee.

David Huff

Michael Brantley

The Indians had a couple of stars in left-handed pitcher David Huff and centerfielder Michael Brantley.

Huff, who started the game and in a competition with four candidates for the fifth spot in the Cleveland starting rotation, allowed three hits in two scoreless innings.

Brantley, who was going to start in left until Grady Sizemore got hurt earlier in the week, doubled and singled for a 2-for-3 day.

The Cleveland Indians put Grady Sizemore on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

Taking Sizemore’s place on the 25-man roster was left-handed pitcher David Huff from Triple-A Columbus.

This mark’s the 6th time in Sizemore’s career that he has been on the MLB disabled list and the third time this season.

The 26-year-old Huff made his first 2011 start in the majors against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis. This year for the Columbus Clippers, he is 8-3 with a 3.86 ERA with 63 strikeouts in 17 starts. From June 8 to June 29, Huff won 5 straight starts going 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA.

When Huff was recalled on Monday, it was supposed to be a one-start-and-back-to Columbus. He had everything going against him, 2-5 record against the Twins lifetime, pitching in 90 degree heat. But Huff pitched so well that he got to stay after winning the game, 5-2, throwing seven scoreless innings, 88 pitches, allowing 5 hits, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. He threw first-pitch strikes to 20 of 26 batters.

The International League has named Columbus pitcher David Huff as the pitcher of the Week.

Huff is the third Columbus player to be honored in 2011 joining Chad Huffman, April 18-24 and Jeanmar Gomez, June 6-12.

The left-handed Huff won twice during the week with a couple of 7-innings gems, leading the league with 14 strikeouts. 10 of those 14 K’s came Monday night at Buffalo as Huff shut down the Bisons hitting to just one run on four hits and no walks. The Clippers won going away, 8-2.

Huff pitched again on Sunday afternoon at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Once again, he shut down a good-hitting team scattering four hits over 7 innings without walking a batter, no runs and the Clippers won 2-0. The win was Huff’s sixth of the season, which is tied for 3rd in the IL.

The 25-year-old Huff is a former first round draft choice of the Cleveland Indians. Huff has 38 starts in the majors with the Indians since 2009. Huff is a California native, hailing from San Diego.

For the 2011 season, Huff in 12 games, all starts, he is 6-2 with a 3.64 ERA in 71.2 innings pitched, 76 hits allowed, 35 runs, 24 earned, 19 walks and 41 strikeouts.

Each night in the past month, the Columbus Clippers have received strong pitching performances from their starting pitchers.

Jeanmar Gomez and David Huff have been dominating at times, but people have forgotten about Scott Barnes.

A crowd of 10,669 at Huntington Park witnessed Barnes work seven shutout innings as the Clippers beat the Toledo Mud Hens.

Barnes (6-1) has won his past three starts and six consecutive decisions since losing to Louisville in his Triple-A debut back on April 19.
