Indians Designate Jairo Asencio For Assignment

The Indians announced that they designated right-hander Jairo Asencio for assignment. They placed Jack Hannahan on the disabled list, recalled Lonnie Chisenhall and activated Josh Tomlin in corresponding moves.

The Indians acquired Asencio from the Braves for cash at the end of March. The out of options reliever posted a 5.96 ERA with 7.4 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 25 2/3 innings for the Indians this year. He led the International League in saves in 2009 and 2011 and posted a 1.81 ERA with 11.5 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 54 2/3 innings at Triple-A last year.
