Indians Trade For Brent Lillibridge From Boston Red Sox

On Tuesday, the Cleveland Indians completed a trade with the Boston Red Sox for right-handed utility player Brent Lillibridge in exchange for minor league reliever Jose De La Torre.

Lillibridge was traded to the Red Sox in June as part of the deal that sent Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox. This is now the second time in as many months that he has been moved.

In order to make room for Lillibridge on the 25-man roster, the Indians will place Lonnie Chisenhall on the 60-day disabled list. When Lillibridge reports on Tuesday, it's likely that the Tribe designates Aaron Cunningham for assignment in order to make room on the 25-man roster.
