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.

Free-agent relief pitcher Robinson Tejeda has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Cleveland Indians and has been invited to major-league spring training.

The 29-year-old Tejeda, a right-hander, spent the past four seasons with Kansas City’s organization. He is 23-27 overall with an ERA of 4.42 in 183 games.

Tejeda pitched in nine games for the Royals in 2011, with a record of 0-1, a 6.14 ERA.

The year before, he appeared in 54 games for Kansas City.

Cleveland will give him every chance to win an open spot in their bullpen, and if he doesn’t, he’ll start the season at Triple-A Columbus to provide depth in case of injuries.

He has also pitched for Philadelphia and Texas.
