In the first few years of Jim Thome’s career, 12 to be exact with the Cleveland Indians, he hit a team-record 334 homers from 1991 to 2002. In his final season, before leaving through free agency to sign with Philadelphia, Thome cracked a team record 52 homers.

Everyday since he left to go to Philadelphia, Tribe fans have been yearning for his return.

Well, their wishes have been answered! Jim Thome has returned.

The Indians acquired Thome from the Minnesota Twins for a player to be named later on or before October 15. The Indians claimed the 40-year-old off waivers.

Thome had a no-trade clause in his one-year, $3 million deal with the Twins and had to waive it to approve the trade to Cleveland. The Indians will pay the remaining $500,000 to $600,000 on his contract.

The Cleveland Indians activated right-handed pitcher Fausto Carmona from the 15-day disabled list. To make room on the 25-man roster, the team optioned RHP Jeanmar Gomez to Triple-A Columbus.

Carmona was injured in his July 2 start at Cincinnati, after suffering a strained right quad while running to first base in the top of the 3rd inning. That was Carmona’s second career trip to the Major League disabled list.

Fausto started the second game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins and pitched well.

Carmona upped his record to 5-10 on the season, pitching six innings of two-run baseball. He allowed seven hits, struck out one and walked none as the Indians swept the doubleheader winning game two 6-3 and moved a game ahead of the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central Division.

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.
