Indians make room for Nick Johnson; could be ready for stretch run

The Cleveland Indians have made room at Triple-A Columbus for former Yankees first baseman Nick Johnson. By doing so, the Tribe released infielder Wes Hodges.

Johnson signed a minor league contract with the Indians in February. He will split time with the Clippers and Double-A Akron, depending on who is playing at home.

Johnson, a career .270 hitter, had offseason surgery on his right wrist and Cleveland feels that he can help them during the stretch drive, but he needs to get several at bats before he is added to the 40-man roster.

Johnson played for Indians manager Manny Acta in Washington.

Wes Hodges gave the Columbus Clippers new-life when he hit a Cory Wade pitch into the left field seats and tied the game at four in the seventh.

But Joe Martinez (4-2) gave up a run in the bottom of the seventh inning and is the losing pitcher in the team’s 5-4 loss on Wednesday night.

The Clippers swept the Bulls at home 10 days ago, but the Clippers have had it tough in Durham and drops to 35-18 on the season.

Pre-Season Clippers: Grady Sizemore Has a Promising Showing; Clippers edge OSU, 4-3

4/05/11 -Columbus, Ohio- Coming off a championship year, thus far the Clippers have shown potential for what may be another good run at the championship as they went on to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes in a 7-inning exhibition game by a final count of 4-3. A game that started off slow eventually took off and included an out-of-the park shot by Luke Carlin 12 (who was playing for the Bucks). Fans enjoyed cheap $5 admission and brisk but bearable weather. The OSU left fielder David Corna was shaky at times, but the wind certainly played a factor in that. The game had one double-play (shown below) that got most of the fans on their feet. There is a lot to be excited about especially after the solid play from Carlin, Wes Hodges, and Luis Valbuena.  One thing that made the game especially interesting to one personal viewer (ME) was the play of #41 Grady Sizemore in blue..

After starting the game with a ground out that went from second to first (base) CF Grady Sizemore went on to have a not great, but solid 7-innings. He was responsible for one run scored and stole a base and finished the night 2-4 at the plate.

Coming off of a knee injury, Sizemore demonstrated he is in the right track in terms of gaining back strength and getting the reps needed before he suits up for the Cleveland Indians.

“We need to get in the flow of the season”
“It was a good team effort”
-Manager Mike Sarbaugh

With one more exhibition game against Akron the team heads into regular season play with their first game Thursday at Indianapolis. The Clippers do not return to home until the 16th with a game against Toledo. They then could have great success but will be tested as they have 10-game home stretch followed by 5 away to round out the month of April.

IL FINALS GAME 1:Columbus Clippers 18 Durham Bulls 5; Clippers lead 1-0

After going through the longest drought between Governors’ Cup games in franchise history, the Clippers made up for the lost time Tuesday night at Huntington Park, by jumping all over the Durham Bulls from the opening inning, to take game 1 in the best-of-five series, 18-5.

Jose Constanza singled, stole a base and then scored on a Cord Phelps single to open the scoring. But that was just the start of the nightmare for the Bulls. Wes Hodges banged out a two-run homer to the deepest part of the ballpark, scoring Phelps.

David Huff (MiLB)

Jared Goedert later doubled to score Jason Kipnis (who singled in his first Triple-A at bat after being called up to Columbus to replace Drew Sutton, who was recalled to Cleveland) and Jerad Head rounded up the five-run inning with a single to score Goedert.

Bulls pitcher Richard De Los Santos (0-2) was ejected in the third inning for hitting Hodges.

Clippers pitcher David Huff (1-0), pitched smoothly and didn’t allow a base runner until a lead-off single in the fifth inning.

All told, Columbus scored their 18 runs on 20 hits and every starter in the lineup had at least two hits a piece and everyone scored at least one run.

The Clippers will play at Huntington Park for the final time in 2010, when they host the Bulls in game two on Wednesday night. Columbus right-hander Zack McAllister is scheduled to take to the mound opposite Durham’s Anuery Rodriguez.
