Huff gets Indians' final rotation spot

BY foxsports • April 1, 2010

David Huff is in the Cleveland Indians' starting rotation.

Right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who was in competition for a starting job, was optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

Huff gave up one run and five hits over seven innings to the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday in his final spring audition. The 25-year-old led Cleveland with 11 wins a year ago as a rookie after making his major-league debut on May 17.

Manager Manny Acta says Huff will have the No. 4 spot in the rotation with Mitch Talbot at No. 5.

Carrasco, 23, was one of four players acquired from Philadelphia in the trade that sent 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee to the Phillies in July. He had a 12-inning scoreless stretch earlier this spring and compiled a 4.60 ERA overall in four outings.
