Cut loose like a deuce

The first cuts of camp have come, and it’s a small group.

Not that he was a favorite for the position anyway, but count left-hander Rich Rundles out of the running for the open bullpen job. He has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus. Rundles, who made his big-league debut with the Tribe toward the end of last season, gave up nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits in four spring innings over five appearances.

Right-hander Tomo Ohka and left-hander Ryan Edell have also been cut loose, reassigned to Minor League camp.

Ohka, a veteran brought in as a non-roster invitee, gave up 10 runs (six earned) on 14 hits in just 3 2/3 innings over three appearances this spring.

Edell, who was in the Double-A Akron rotation last year, got his first taste of big-league camp and gave up a run on two hits with a walk in two innings over three relief appearances.


I thought you were better than this…
Everyone knows it’s “revved up like a ******.”

The cuts are always tough. Players try hard. Good luck to all.


Uh, no, djacks. I’m referring to the far superior original version of “Blinded By the Light” by Bruce Springsteen.

Apparently, the first cut is NOT the deepest.

Glad to see my sarcasm was evident…haha.
