Indians designate Ezequiel Carrera for assignment - MLB Daily Dish: The Cleveland Indians have designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for designated hitter Jason Giambi. I have a hard time imagining that an outfield-starved team (Yankees? Mets? Phillies?) won't offer the Indians something to get Zeke as a fourth outfielder.
Chris McGuiness to be offered back to Texas - Lone Star Ball: Chris McGuiness, selected from the Rangers by the Indians in the Rule 5 Draft, will not be on the Indians' Opening Day roster. By rule, the Tribe must offer him up on waivers, and if he clears, must offer him to Texas. At that point, Texas can claim him back for a fee, or work out a deal for the Tribe to keep him.
And now, on the field:

Orioles trade for LGFT reliever Asencio - baltimoresun.com: Jairo Asencio who played for Cubs and Indians in 2012, will go to Triple-A Norfolk. For those of you who are completists. Also, their bullpen situation may affect whether the O's decide to keep TJ McFarland or offer him back to the Tribe, so keep an eye on Baltimore's pitching as they finalize their roster.
