The Indians announced that they re-acquired left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz from the Rangers for cash considerations. The club placed right-hander Carlos Carrasco on the 60-day disabled list to create roster space for De La Cruz. Cleveland's 40-man roster is full with the addition of De La Cruz, who will be optioned to Double-A Akron.
The 6'5" 23-year-old posted a 4.19 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 6.0 BB/9 in 86 innings as a starter and reliever at Double-A last year. He has typically walked and struck out lots of opponents, as his career rates of 8.9 K/9 and 4.9 BB/9 indicate. The Indians originally sent De La Cruz to the Rangers on February 21st. He made one appearance for Texas before being returned to Cleveland.
So… The Indians sent him to Texas 1 month ago for cash considerations. Now the take him back for cash also. Where can we see the cash consideration on the first move and on this one?
I thought there were no take backs.
They are indian givers
Mega-props needed on that pun.
I know the Dolans’ are cheap, but ow they’re using minor leaguers as collateral for loans?
