Bits: Damon, Middlebrooks make debuts 

May, 3, 2012

Veteran Johnny Damon made his debut for the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday, going hitless with a walk in four plate appearances. Damon will play left field for the Tribe, and since he didn't play 20 outfield games last season, won't become outfield eligible until he plays 10 games in 2012. Still, with 16 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 2011, Damon has skills, he's going to play and he's readily available in ESPN leagues.
