Indians designate De La Cruz for assignment
The Indians announced today that they have designated left-handed pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz for assignment. The move was necessitated because they needed to clear space on the 40-man for first baseman Casey Kotchman who they signed back on February 3rd. The Indians now have ten days to trade, release, or outright De La Cruz to the minors.
