Indians/Rockies Agree to Blockbuster Trade

Rebuild in Cleveland Begins Today

After missing the playoffs the last three seasons, the Cleveland Indians have decided it is time to reshape their roster.  Today, the Indians and Rockies have agreed to terms on the following trade:

Cleveland Trades: Mike Minor SP, Craig Kimbrel CL


Colorado Trades: Hudson Boyd SP, Carlos Martinez SS,

Alonso Martinez 3B,

Russell Wilson 2B,

Chris Betts C,

Danny William SP



Sources within the Cleveland front-office have expressed great excitement in acquiring Martinez, Betts, and Boyd, believing each will play a large role at the big league level in the years to come.

In acquiring Minor and Kimbrel, the Rockies are addressing a giant weakness both in the rotation and the bullpen.
