Shaun Marcum

Shaun Marcum designated for assignment by the Indians

Two starts ago Shaun Marcum tossed seven shutout innings, but he failed to make it out of the third inning last time out and the Indians have designated the 33-year-old right-hander for assignment.

To replace him on the roster Cleveland called up journeyman right-hander Jeff Manship from Triple-A.

Marcum missed most of 2013 and all of 2014 with injuries. He had a decent 30/11 K/BB ratio in 35 innings for the Indians, but served up nine homers in seven outings. Never a hard thrower, his average fastball clocked in at just 85.3 miles per hour.
