Indians Trade Jhonny Peralta

Anthony Castrovince reports the Indians have just traded Jhonny Peralta to the Tigers. I am very excited about this move. I stated earlier that the Indians needed to trade him as soon as possible. Peralta just held up a spot on the roster and hindered the progression of the young guys on the roster. In return, the Tribe gets pitcher Giovanni Soto. The 19 year old lefty pitched well in A ball this year with a 2.61 ERA and 8.3 K/9. Although years away from the big leagues, he looks pretty promising. To get rid of Jhonny's contract and get a promising young arm was probably the best the Tribe could do.

On a less fun note, Castrovince also reports Luis Valbuena is taking Peralta's roster spot. There has got to be someone else who we can call up. Also, more time for Andy Marte to play, hooray...
