Chamberlain Back, Huff Out

Joba Chamberlain, as he predicted yesterday, has been activated today. In a corresponding move to free up a spot on the roster, David Huff has been designated for assignment.

This marks the third time this season that Huff has been DFAd. It happened a few days ago, when Cleveland did so, allowing the Yankees to claim him. That was actually the second time this season the Indians had DFAd Huff, as they did the same thing back in March.

Although Chamberlain hasn't been a shut-down reliever, posting an ERA of 4.02 over the previous three seasons, his higher strikeout rate and lower walkrate than Huff will surely be welcomed back.
