Fausto CarmonaIn another argument for the designated hitter, the Indians have placed starter Fausto Carmona on the 15-day disabled list after he suffered a strained right quadriceps muscle running to first base. The counterargument, and mine, would be that if you can't run 90 feet, you shouldn't be eligible to make the minimum salary and be able to call yourself a professional athlete -- but those AL types will talk about the DH and all that.

In the third inning of Saturday's game against the Reds, Carmona laid down a sacrifice bunt and tripped on his way to first and had to exit the game. You can watch the play here.

The team activated closer Chris Perez from the bereavement list to take Carmona's place not he roster.

Carmona is 4-10 with a 5.78 ERA in 18 starts this season.

Perez has 19 saves and a 2.37 ERA. Perez went on the bereavement list on Thursday to be with his family after the passing of his maternal grandmother. Vinnie Pestano picked up his first save in Perez's absence on Saturday.

Not glad to see him hurt, but I am glad to see him out of the rotation.

That makes a whole bunch of us. Carmonas done less then nothing this season except lose games for us

With regards to his 'tumble' (actually a 'trip & take flight') in all my yrs watching this game Ive never seen anything quite like that. Probly on DL as much for the embarassment factor as injury. Wow

Not glad to see him hurt, but I am glad to see him out of the rotation. He is worthless. Why the front office didn't force the manager to shake up the rotation is mind boggling. Just another example that Shapiro doesn't have a clue.
