The Indians have designated 1B/3B/DH Mark Reynolds for assignment. As such, they now have 10 days to trade, release or outright Reynolds.

This season, the 30-year-old Reynolds has hit .215/.307/.373 with 15 home runs in 99 games played. A right-handed batter, Reynolds in 2013 has an OPS of just .745 against left-handed pitching. His offensive struggles in tandem with his defensive limitations have rendered him expendable in Cleveland. Reynolds had been struggling since his hot April ended and had started just eight of the team's last 21 games.

Given his power track record, though, he seems likely to catch on elsewhere. Presently, Reynolds has 196 career home runs.
