Jake Westbrook Traded
Many sources, including Tom Krasovic of Fan House, reported on the deal. It sends Jake Westbrook to the Cardinals, Ryan Ludwick and Nick Greenwood to the Padres, and Corey Kluber to the Indians. Kluber leads the Texas League in strikeouts and has given up a little less than a hit an inning. The only real complication during this deal was that Westbrook has to reduce his $2M trade bonus, thus needing Union approval.
