Josh Phelps designated for assignment 

The Cleveland Indians have signed shortstop Jose Hernandez, and to make room for him, they have designated Josh Phelps for assignment, giving them 10 days to trade him or waive him.

Phelps has no real position, although he can play some 1B and catch in a pinch. But he mashes lefties, and would be a great option for the righty bat off the bench/platoon DH role that they are supposedly talking to Joe Randa about.

The Rangers need to see what it would take to pick him up and bring him to town.
