Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Monday 18 July 2016 at 4:45 pm

The Cleveland Indians have dealt 30-year old lefty reliever Ross Detwiler to the A’s for cash considerations.  Detwiler pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Tribe this year and he was 0-0 with a 5.79 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 180 games (76 starts) in his first 9 years in the show and he is 21-37 with 1 save, a 4.21 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.  This is not much of a loss for the Tribe, as Detwiler did not pitch well for them this year.

The Cleveland Indians have designated 33-year old switch-hitting IF/OF Michael Martinez for assignment.  Martinez played in 32 games for the Indians this year and he was 17 of 60 (.283 avg, .690 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  He has played in 48 games in his two years with the Tribe and he is 25 of 90 (.278 avg, .668 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.  Martinez essentially lost his roster spot because the Indians and Blue Jays played 19 innings yesterday.  The Indians hope that Martinez will clear waivers and accept an outright assignment to AAA, so that they can keep him.

UPDATE:  (7/8/2016) – The Cleveland Indians have dealt Michael Martinez to the Boston Red Sox for cash considerations.
