Indians Damon ready for Indians debut against White Sox

Quote:
Apparently Indians manager Manny Acta read all he needed to from reports out of Goodyear, Ariz., where Johnny Damon has been training for two weeks since signing a one-year contract with the club.

Acta said the 38-year-old will bat leadoff and play left field when the Tribe takes on the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday.

"That's the way we mapped it out with Johnny last week," Acta said. "He just flew in [Monday] night from Arizona, so we planned out that [on Tuesday] he'd just run around, take batting practice with his new teammates, start to feel comfortable around people here and then play [on Wednesday]."

The addition of Damon relegates Shelley Duncan to more of a bench or platoon role. Duncan will likely snare some at-bats against left-handed pitching at either corner-outfield spot, first base or designated hitter. Damon has spent most of the past two seasons in a DH role with Detroit and Tampa Bay, but Cleveland already has a full-time DH in Travis Hafner.
