Indians Designate Wes Hodges For Assignment

The Indians designated infielder Wes Hodges for assignment to make room for pitcher Josh Tomlin, according to the team.

Hodges, a second-round pick of the Indians in 2006, was hitting .270/.316/.423 this year in his second Triple A stint.  He came up as a third baseman, but has been playing first base and DH this year.  Baseball America ranked him 27th among Indians prospects heading into the season, citing health issues and the move off third base.
