The Cleveland Indians made a round of roster cuts this morning, most notably sending third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall and first baseman Matt LaPorta to Columbus. Lesser known Chad Huffman was also sent to minor league camp. That is good news for all you Casey Kotchman and Jack Hannahan fans out there.
It will be nice to know that Chisenhall is available in Columbus this year in case the veterans falter. Hopefully if they do, the Indians won’t wait as long to pull the trigger as they did a year ago with guys like Adam Everett and Austin Kearns.
Now, if Shelley Duncan can just finish off the competition for the left field job and solidify that spot for the entire season…
