Johnson designated for assignment

According to MLB.com

6/20/06  Cleveland Indians
Designated RHP Jason Johnson for assignment; Purchased the contract of INF Joe Inglett from Triple-A Buffalo.  

It feels good, doesn't it?  Hopefully Shapiro can work out a trade in the next 10 (?) days so we don't have to eat the entire contract.

UPDATE: We're waiting for official word, but apparently ...

  • Jeremy Guthrie was optioned back down to Buffalo, where presumably he will rejoin the rotation.
  • RHP Ed Mujica gets his first big-league callup, taking Guthrie's spot in the pen.
  • ... and the big one ...
  • Jeremy Sowers is expected to be promoted from Buffalo to take Johnson's spot in the rotation on Sunday.
  • It would be fair to say that both Sowers and Mujica have terrorized Triple-A hitters this season. Sowers lacks imposing K rates but has allowed only 13 ER in 14 starts, averaging 6.5 innings, five hits and two walks per outing -- and he has allowed only one home run all season. Mujica has allowed zero runs -- yes, zero -- over 39 innings, a span of 24 appearances split equally between Akron and Buffalo -- with a healthy 35 K's along the way. [Jay]
