CLEVELandMILIDH Posted May 16, 2009 Report Share Posted May 16, 2009 By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com 05/16/09 2:08 PM ET ST. PETERSBURG -- As expected, the Indians are giving Sunday's starting nod to left-hander David Huff. Huff will be promoted from Triple-A Columbus to make his Major League debut against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The Indians have not yet announced a corresponding roster move, which will be made on Sunday morning, but they'll have to clear a 40-man roster spot for Huff. In seven starts for Columbus, Huff is 5-1 with a 4.35 ERA. He has struck out 32 and walked 16 in 39 1/3 innings. Huff, 24, was the 39th overall selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft. He was in the mix for a rotation spot out of Spring Training but was hampered by biceps tendinitis. The Indians had an open rotation spot after Jeremy Sowers was optioned back to Columbus on Friday to make room for newly signed reliever Luis Vizcaino.
