Indians Designate Luis Valbuena For Assignment

The Indians announced that infielder Luis Valbuena has been designated for assignment.  Valbuena, who turns 26 on November 30, saw a lot of time at second base for the Tribe in 2009 and 2010, but spent most of 2011 in the minors. 

Valbuena has a career .630 OPS in 806 Major League appearances with Seattle and Cleveland, but has wielded a much more dangerous bat in the minors --- he has a career .304/.387/.468 line in 937 plate appearances at Triple-A.  With this minor league production in mind, it's easy to imagine Valbuena being claimed by a team looking for infield depth.
