    By Chuck Murr Indians Ink
    Date: Apr 10, 2005

    Jody Gerut is progressing, but pitching prospect Scott Lewis has been shut down at the Indians' extending spring training camp in Winter Haven, Fla.

    Gerut is scheduled to play three innings in right field and hopefully get two at-bats in an extended spring training game Monday. He is rehabbing from surgery to repair at torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, suffered last September.

    </TD></TR><TR><TD colSpan=3>
    Lewis, however, has been shut down indefinitely with soreness in his left shoulder.

    The Indians' third-round pick in 2004 out of Ohio State had surgery on the shoulder in 2003, but returned to pitch briefly for the Buckeyes last spring and worked in three games last summer at Class A Mahoning Valley (one walk and 13 strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings).

    He suffered a setback this winter when he strained the shoulder while trying to keep from falling down some stairs at home.

    Last week, he visited orthopedist Dr. James Andrews, who had done surgery on Lewis' shoulder in 2003. Dr. Andrews recommended a period of non-throwing and rehab.

    An exclusive profile interview with Lewis appears in next month's issue of Indians Ink Magazine.

    SABATHIA UPDATE: Left-hander C.C. Sabathia, on the disabled list as he recovers from a strained muscle in his right side, is scheduled to make his second start for Class AA Akron on Tuesday night. He allowed one earned run and two hits over four innings for the Aeros last Thursday night. If all goes well Tuesday, Sabathia likely will be activated before next weekend's home series against Minnesota.

    at Jacobs Field

    Monday vs. White Sox, 3:05 p.m.
    RHP Kevin Millwood (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. RHP Freddy Garcia (0-0, 3.00)
    Wednesday vs. White Sox, 7:05 p.m.
    LHP Cliff Lee (0-0, 13.50) vs. RHP Jose Contreras (0-0, 1.50)
    Thursday vs. White Sox, 7:05 p.m.
    RHP Jake Westbrook (0-2, 7.20) vs. RH Orlando Hernandez (1-0, 1.29).

    HOME OPENER SOLD OUT: The home opener Monday against the White Sox is sold out.

    STRONG BULLPEN: Over a three-game span entering Sunday, the Indians' bullpen had been allowing only two earned runs over the last 17 1/3 innings (9H, 4R/2ER, 3BB, 14K) for an ERA of 1.04. That dropped the team's relief ERA from 15.43 to 2.75.

    OOPS: The Indians have made an error in each of their five games and have committed an MLB-high eight miscues to begin the season. ... The Indians rank last in the AL in fielding percentage (.960) after finishing seventh (.983) in 2004. ... Cleveland also is last in the league in batting average (.220).

    3-7 in 1 run games! The Tribe better turn this around if they want to contend in the central.​

    It's really getting frustrating that this teams record is as bad as it is when we have gotten tremendous starting pitching so far this season. Westbrook being 0-4 is sickening.

    I think that our hitting is starting to come around, they better because the White Sox are smoking everyone right now.

    Lets hope we can get it going. I still don't think the ChiSox can maintain with their pitching staff. The Twins are still the team to beat. I could be wrong.

    Belliard now has hit a homerun in three consecutive games, its nice to see them finally starting to hit the ball, lets see if we can get the sweep on Sunday afternoon.​

    No sweep. Moyer once again makes us look stupid.

    Oh well. At least we're playing better now.
