Indians Designate Rick VandenHurk For Assignment

The Indians designated out of options right-hander Rick VandenHurk for assignment, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer tweets. The move creates 40-man roster space for a pitcher the Indians acquired from the Braves earlier today: right-hander Jairo Asencio.

VandenHurk has bounced around considerably in 2012. The Orioles released the native of the Netherlands in February, the Blue Jays signed him to a Major League contract soon afterwards and the Indians claimed him off of waivers eight days ago.

VandenHurk has MLB experience in five seasons, but he appeared in just four games for the 2011 Orioles. He spent most of the season as a starter at Triple-A, where he posted a 4.43 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in 154 1/3 innings. The 6'5" 26-year-old has a 5.97 ERA with 8.8 K/9, 4.7 BB/9 and a 27.9% ground ball rate in 181 career innings with the Marlins and Orioles.
