The Cleveland Indians have designated outfielder and designated hitter Shelley Duncan for assignment, reports Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer:

To take Duncan’s place on their roster, the Indians recalled right-hander Jeanmar Gomez.

Duncan has spent the past three seasons in Cleveland. After a so-so 2010 campaign, in which he hit .231/.317/.419 over 229 at-bats, he posted solid numbers last season. Over 223 at-bats in 2011, Duncan hit .260/.324/.484 with seventeen doubles and eleven home runs.

The 32-year-old has gone on to struggle this year, only hitting .203/.288/.388 with ten doubles and eleven home runs in 232 at-bats.

Gomez logged a perfect inning of relief last night for the Tribe. On the season, the 24-year-old has appeared in fifteen games, including thirteen starts, for the Indians, maintaining an ERA of 5.11 over that span.
