The Indians have designated righty Preston Guilmet for assignment, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). Guilmet, a 9th-round pick in the 2009 draft, has spent his career as a reliever in the Cleveland system.
The 26-year-old has very limited MLB experience, appearing in just four games last year, but has been a force in the minors. In 64 1/3 innings last year in his first stint at Triple-A, he posted a 1.68 ERA with 10.1 K/9 against 2.0 BB/9. Since converting to the pen after his first year in professional ball, Guilmet has never had an ERA above 2.39 while moving up the ladder each year, and has consistently posted strong strikeout totals with few walks.
