Indians Designate Jess Todd For Assignment

Todd, 25, was originally acquired from the Cardinals along with Chris Perez in the Mark DeRosa trade. The right-hander has appeared in 24 games with Cleveland since the deal, pitching to a 7.43 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9. Todd has allowed 11 runs and 18 hits in nine relief innings with the Indians' Triple-A affiliate this year, walking as many batters as he struck out (six).
