David Huff Demoted; Joe Smith Recalled

Struggling starter David Huff was sent to AAA Columbus. Not really surprising; he has not looked good this year at all. Hopefully he can work out his issues and come back and show why he was an 11 game winner last year. I don't see it unfortunately. Huff is not good enough to be a solid starter in this league.

To take his spot on the roster, the Indians called up Joe Smith. Smith struggled in his first stint with the Tribe this year, compiling a 7.71 ERA and walking 6. Smith has worked hard and had a 1.96 ERA with the Clippers in 20 appearances. Smith looks to improve during his second stint and I hope he can help fortify our bullpen.
