Indians - DFAed Herges
Cleveland Indians - Designated P Matt Herges for assignment.
It’s not often that teams, especially ones already having problems, designate their reliever with the lowest ERA for assignment. One would think that it’s an indication that the Indians are getting “over” 2009 and looking forward. The player they add, Winston Abreu, picked up in exchange for Meloan, is hardly a prospect at 32 (a Dominican 32, at that), but Abreu has very little service time, was quite good for Chiba Lotte last year and absolutely ridiculous for Durham (32 IP, 14 H, 10 BB, 49 K, 1.41 ERA) this season. That’s good enough for a 2.93 translation, though he’s unlikely to keep that up.
Herges will turn up elsewhere. The Indians won’t get some great prospect for him, but they should probably get someone at least on the level of the guys in the Hinske trade.
