Indians Acquire Jess Todd To Complete DeRosa Deal

Derrick Goold reports, via Twitter, that the Indians have acquired Jess Todd as the player to be named later from the Mark DeRosa trade.

According to an official press release, Todd will be added to the 40-man roster and report to Triple-A Columbus.

Todd, 23, entered the season as the Cardinals' #4 prospect. He's pitched very well, posting a 2.20 ERA through 49 innings, allowing just 39 hits and 13 walks while striking out 59 and collecting 24 saves. Opponents are hitting just .214 against Todd this season.

The Indians also acquired Chris Perez in the original trade, back on June 27th.
