Indians cut Johnny Damon

Johnny Damon was cut by the Indians on Friday after struggling through 64 games, leaving the veteran outfielder facing an uncertain future once again.

Damon, designated for assignment, signed with the Indians on April 17 but hit only .222 with four home runs.

“He made an impact on a lot of people here, despite not performing the way he was expecting and we were expecting,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “He’s still a guy who can move around pretty good. I think he was affected by missing spring training, and I think I have a sense that he probably is going to continue to play, and he is open to joining somebody else.”

The Indians recalled outfielder Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A Columbus.
