The Indians have assigned right-handed pitcher Adam Miller to the High-A Kinston roster out of extended spring. Miller, who has had multiple procedures on his right long finger, has not pitched for an Indians affiliate since May 20, 2008 with Triple-A Buffalo although he did pitch in winter ball in November 2008. Miller will pitch in relief, and if he proves healthy and his slider improves he could move quickly through the system and even get to Cleveland later this year.

Today the Indians announced that infielder Josh Rodriguez has been returned to them by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rodriguez, 26, was selected by Pittsburgh in the Major League portion of the Rule 5 draft in December 2010. This spring with Pittsburgh he hit .289 (11-38) in 23 games with 1 HR and 6 RBI. He opened the 2011 season on their opening day Major League roster and appeared in 7 games and was 1-for-12 with a run scored in his big league debut. He has been assigned to the AAA Columbus roster.
