The Indians announced today that they have designated infielder Christian Arroyo for assignment. That cleared one of two roster spots the club needs to trim its active roster down to 28 men.
Arroyo, 25, once rated as a highly regarded prospect but hasn’t yet been given a lengthy run of MLB action. He’s a .215/.280/.342 hitter in 251 plate appearances spread over the past four seasons. Arroyo came to the Cleveland organization in a swap with the Rays last July.
