News and Notes: Miller on DL; Two SignedSo the Indians made a few moves today..
- Jorge Velandia and Todd Linden signed to minor league deals.
Velandia got a call up with the Blue Jays this year after they lost John McDonald and David Eckstein to injuries. He pretty much sucks with the bat.
Linden was with the A's this year in Triple A. He has a little better bat than Velandia.
Both are on their way to Buffalo.
- Adam Miller is back on the DL...
Not good.. More finger trouble on his pitching hand. This is sort of Josh Beckett like blisters the fire baller is getting. We are gonna have to keep waiting and waiting to see if this kid can put together a healthy stretch of baseball.
Also Wedge is having trouble filling in the 2 and 5 spots on his roster. That's been the two most prominent spots that he is having issues finding some consistency in. The 5th spot is one of the worst in the leagues in terms of production.
- Hafner was held out of the lineup on Monday because of shoulder soreness..
He is also getting a little angry, heres a quote from a story yesterday int he Plain Dealer.
"Anger? Yeah, there is some anger with ourselves," said Hafner, whose offensive struggles (.217) have been well-chronicled. "Today was one we had to win, the way C.C. [Sabathia] and the bullpen pitched.
"You have to make your own breaks. The bottom line is we have to put up more consistent at-bats. Then you don't have to look at one or two plays." (Plain Dealer)Let's see if that anger starts to show.
