Here's a rundown of some minor transactions from around baseball…
- The Indians announced the acquisition of infielder Davis Stoneburner from the Rangers. The move completes the February 21 trade that sent Kelvin De La Cruz to Texas, though De La Cruz was re-acquired by the Tribe earlier this week. Stoneburner was a ninth-round draft choice for the Rangers in 2007 and he has a .273/.339/.422 slash line in 1849 minor league plate appearances. He spent last season at Double-A Frisco.
David Stoneburner is one cool name! (Didn’t he play for Bedrock under Fred and Barney?)
Except you can’t actually burn stones
So, to simplify, the Rangers just sold Davis Stoneburner to the Indians.
