Indians Designate Josh Smith – MLB Trade Rumors

The Indians have designated lefty Josh Smith for assignment, per’s Mandy Bell (via Twitter). That’s the corresponding move for the club’s already announced promotion of James Karinchak.

Smith seemingly found another gear at 29 years of age. The long-time minor-leaguer earned his first MLB call-up after racking up a 74:24 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings at Triple-A.

Unfortunately, the walks also piled up in Smith’s brief big-league showing. Over 8 1/3 frames, he struck out a dozen batters but also doled out eight free passes and recorded a lowly 7.5% swinging-strike rate.
