Lopez is the latest player designated for assignment by slumping Indians


The Cleveland Indians, in the midst of a 10-game losing streak, have given Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon some company on the”designated for assignment” list. Today, the team announced that they designated infielder Jose Lopez for assignment. The move allows room for right-hander Frank Herrmann who has been recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Herrmann is needed due to an over-used bullpen.

Lopez appeared in 66 games for the Indians this year, playing third base and seeing some time at first and second. The 28-year-old posted a .249 batting average in 224 plate appearances. He earns $800K this year after signing a minor league deal with Cleveland last December.

Jim Thome has always been one of baseball’s “Mr. Nice Guy” with the media.

He has always been coveted by several teams, Cleveland twice, Philadelphia twice, the Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins.

He has now joined his eighth MLB team, the Baltimore Orioles, who are one of the surprise teams in baseball this year with a record of 42-36, .538 winning percentage, 6 GB the NY Yankees in the AL East.

Thome arrived in Baltimore on Sunday in exchange for two minor leagues from the Philadelphia Phillies.

He is 41 years old now and is expected to make a good team, better.

Thome is back in the American League with his 609 career homers and he can play DH on a regular basis without having to play the field.

On Sunday, against his former team, the Cleveland Indians, he received standing ovations eventhough he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a 6-2 loss.

Phillips’ appeal for inside-the-park homer denied by MLB


Brandon Phillips, the Cincinnati Reds talented second baseman felt that he had an inside-the-park homer on Monday night in his team’s 10-9 loss at Cleveland. He felt so strongly, he appealed to MLB.

However, the opinion that counts the most, Major League Baseball, says no!

Phillips’ and his agent’s appeal to Major League Baseball for a scoring change was denied on Wednesday. MLB allows appeals of scoring changes, but a player has to do it through his agent.

In the fifth inning of Monday’s 10-9 loss to the Indians, Phillips lined a ball down the left-field line that was misplayed by Johnny Damon and led to Phillips scoring on the play.

The official scorer ruled the play an RBI double for Phillips, with an error on Damon. Phillips and the Reds felt he should have been credited with an inside-the-park home run.

Phillips is not mad, he said “losing the game is more important to him.”

Slugging outfielder/designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero had quite a career in Major League Baseball with Montreal, the LA Angels, Texas and Baltimore.

His totals are a .318 average, 2,590 hits, 449 homers, 1,496 RBI’s.

But no one wanted to sign him as a free agent after the 2011 season.

Cleveland took a look at him briefly during spring training down in his native Dominican Republic. And now, the Toronto Blue Jays have him getting in shape in the minors.

The 37-year-old is moving up to Las Vegas, the Blue Jays Triple-A affiliate.

Guerrero was tearing up the Class A League at Dunedin, Florida, hitting .450 with a double, four home runs and eight RBI’s.
