Tribe trades for 3B


Recommended Posts

Not sure if he'll be our starting 3B or not, but here's the trade:






CLEVELAND -- Mark DeRosa, who had been rumored to be a part of three- and four-team scenarios in the Jake Peavy trade talks is finally headed out of Chicago -- but not in a deal for the San Diego Padres' ace.


DeRosa has been traded to the Cleveland Indians for three players.


The Indians sent minor league pitchers Jeff Stevens, Chris Archer and John Caub to Chicago in the trade.


The 33-year-old DeRosa may slide into Cleveland's opening at third base.


DeRosa hit 21 home runs and drove in 87 runs for the Cubs last season, appearing in 149 games at a variety of positions.

I suspect DeRosa will play 2B. Jhonny P has been playing 3rd exclusively in winter ball, and doing well by reports. I suspect this seals Jhonny P moving to 3B, and Astrubal to SS.
