Indians Make A Move

We’ve finally got some new Tribe news for ya!

It appears that Catcher Kelly Shoppach has been traded to the Tampa Bay Rays for a Player To Be Named Later. The decision on who that player is will be made by December 20th at the latest.

This move means two things for the Tribe.

1. That it is now an open competition for the starting catcher position, between Lou Marsen, Carlos Santana and Wyatt Toregas.

2. That the Tribe has got a little extra cash in their pocket to pursue some higher quality FA’s this fall. (depending on the PTBNL, but should save us roughly 3 Mil this season)

We will have more on the trade including more reaction when the player is named.
