getty images The Arizona Diamonbacks have designated outfielder Jason Kubel for assignment. Kubel, 31, had only been receiving sparring playing time and was unproductive while in the Diamondbacks lineup. In 89 games this season Kubel was hitting just .220/.288/.325 while making $7.5 million this season. The Diamondbacks will also be on the hook for a $1 million buyout in 2014. Last season Kubel hit 30 home runs so there is a chance someone will offer him a contract to finish out the season.
