On Friday, the Cleveland Indians announced that outfielder Johnny Damon was designated for assignment and that the club had recalled outfielder Ezequiel Carrera from the minor leagues.

Carrera has been performing well as a member of the Columbus Clippers and was recently named the team's player of the week in addition to being named the International league player of the week.

Via the Indians official website:

Carrera, 25, hit .515 (17-33) with 2 doubles, 2 triples, 2 HR and 13 RBI throughout the week, while posting a 1.407 OPS (.528 on-base pct, .879 slugging pct.).
