Indians Designate David Huff For Assignment

The Indians designated lefty David Huff for assignment to open a spot for another southpaw, Scott Barnes, tweeted the team.

Huff, 28, was designated for assignment when the team could not find a spot for him as the season began, but he remained in the organization after clearing waivers.  The team had re-added him to the 40-man roster ten days ago.  After being scored upon in two of his three relief appearances, he's off the 40-man again.  Should he clear waivers, Huff can elect free agency this time, but he would give up his contract in that case.

Huff, drafted 39th overall in 2006 by the Indians, has thrown 288 1/3 innings (52 starts, six relief appearances) in parts of five seasons, with a 5.40 ERA, 5.1 K/9, 3.1 BB/9, and 1.28 HR/9.  After Huff was drafted, Baseball America wrote positively about Huff's command and control but also his fringe-average fastball velocity and lack of a weapon against left-handed hitters.
