Smoke signals

"It's been a while since I've been on a big league field, so I definitely can't wait to get out there,"
Indians reliever Nick Hagadone, who was recalled from Triple-A on Friday and has not pitched in a regular season game since July 6, 2012.

The pair of Indians-Yankees games that were washed away by rain this week will be made up as a traditional doubleheader on May 13 at Progressive Field. The first game will begin at 12:05 p.m. ET, with the second contest starting 20 minutes after the end of the first. Fans with a ticket to either postponed affair can attend both parts of the doubleheader.

Francona played prognosticator on Saturday, predicting designated hitter Jason Giambi would see his first action of the regular season on Sunday against Chicago right-hander Jake Peavy.

"I hate to make the lineup a day ahead of time," Francona said, "but I wouldn't be surprised if he plays tomorrow."

With his walk-off single on Friday night, Indians first baseman Nick Swisher extended his Progressive Field hitting streak to 19 games, tied for the longest active hit streak at the ballpark and the second-longest streak all-time. Phillies infielder Michael Young pieced together a 20-game streak from 2004-08 as a member of the Rangers.
