***Siano chimes in “Wow,
showing no love for the Twinkies picking Porcello who did not look good vs Yanks
and Mauer is back. I ditch on Porcello. Aaron Cook back to back quality starts at
home and now he goes to San Diego so he is my blue plate special for Tuesday but
that is clearly chasing wins in May. Agree on the rest.”

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.
