Dellucci Activated from DL

CLEVELAND, OH — The Cleveland Indians today activated OF DAVID DELLUCCI from the 15-day disabled list.  To clear room on the 25-man roster the Indians optioned LHP RICH RUNDLES to AAA Columbus after Wednesday night’s game vs. Boston.

Dellucci was placed on the 15-day DL on March 30 after being scratched from the lineup of March 28 with a strained left calf.  It was David’s sixth career trip to the disabled list at the Major League level.  Dellucci began a 20-day rehab assignment at AAA Columbus on April 20 and hit .414 (12-29) with 1 2B, 1 3B & 2RBI in 7 games, hitting safely in all 7 contests (5G DH, 2G LF).  He was 5 for 10 with runners on base and 3 for 6 with runners in scoring position.

The Indians now have 4 players on the Major League disabled list at present (Westbrook/S. Lewis/Hafner/Carroll). 

Rundles returns to Columbus after being recalled prior to the game of April 29, but did not appear in the game.  


Hey guys, I’ve just been offered Matsuzaka for David Ortiz. My pitching and hitting are both pretty solid, so I’m looking for best overall value. What do you think?

I’m looking to generate more power from my roster, particularly in the HR and RBI department. I’m pretty good with pitching; in fact I might even have too much, 7 SP and 3 RP when I can only start 7 total. Capps is my 3rd closer and I’m trying to trade him for a stronger bat because a 3rd closer weighs down some of my pitching options each week. Would Andre Ethier be a good addition, or do you guys have someone else in mind within Capps range? My OF and Util looks like this: Beltran, Ichiro, Adam Lind, and Church with Felipe Lopez on the bench. I would feel more comfortable with my lineup if I can get one more decent bat into the mix. I already tried getting Raul Ibanez for Capps and Myers, but that didn’t work.


Boys –

As I patiently wait for LaPorta (boo Delluchi). For Week 5, I have a DH spot available…options are C. Jackson, E. Dukes, P. Feliz, J. Francoeur.

Who do you like for the week? I had been using C. Jackson, was thinking Dukes, but feel Feliz is hottest???

Any matchups catch your fancy?

Also, Aviles (2B) is doing zippy for me….waiver wire includes Callaspo (picked up as hot hand), Bonifacio, Iwamura, Barmes, Getz, or Fontenot realistically.

I am willing to SoH for 2B, but do you like any of these over the others if I wanted to pretend they would produce for the balance of the season??


(I did cut Aviles….so he’s availabe as well)
