Indians Vs. White Sox: Johnny Damon Exits Debut Early With General Cramping

It took Johnny Damon a few weeks to officially sign with the Cleveland Indians and join the team. On Wednesday night, he finally made his debut against the Chicago White Sox.

Unfortunately, that debut only lasted five and a half innings as he was replaced in the field in the bottom of the sixth by Shelley Duncan. Nobody seemed to know why Damon exited the game at first, but the Indians made an announcement on Twitter shortly thereafter:

The newest Indian was 0-2 with a walk and the Indians were tied 3-3 when Duncan replaced Damon.
