Cleveland Indians left fielder Johnny Damon was designated for assignment today, signaling the almost certain end to a career in which he made two All-Star appearances and won two World Series rings.

Damon, 38, has played for seven teams and currently has 2,769 hits, 235 homers, 1,139 RBI and 408 stolen bases for his career.

In April, Damon signed a minor-league contract worth $1.25 million and in 64 games this season he batted .222 with four homers and 19 RBIs.

The Indians recalled Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A to replace Damon on the roster.
