Indians place Brandon Guyer on DL with left wrist injury
CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians have placed outfielder Brandon Guyer on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained left wrist.
Guyer underwent an MRI on Sunday that revealed the sprain. Playing primarily against left-handed pitchers, Guyer is batting .182 with one homer and five RBIs in 21 games.
Indians manager Terry Francona says the wrist has been bothering Guyer for about a week and he aggravated it while taking a swing Friday. Guyer was limited to pinch-running duties Saturday.
Utilityman Michael Martinez was designated for assignment. He was batting .364 (4 for 11) in 15 games and pitched a scoreless inning against the Chicago White Sox on April 13.
Erik Gonzalez, who plays the infield and outfield, was recalled from Triple-A Columbus, and outfielder Daniel Robertson had his contract purchased from Columbus. Robertson was starting in right field against Minnesota lefty Hector Santiago on Sunday.
