MLB Trade Rumors: Ludwick Goes To Pittsburgh After Indians Balk; Ubaldo Jimenez Passes Physical

The only real noise heard about any last-day deals for the Tribe involved San Diego’s (and former Indian) Ryan Ludwick, but after the Padres’ asking price proved to be too steep for Cleveland’s blood, outfielder Ludwick instead went to the Pittsburgh Pirates, on what turned out to be a quiet day in the American League Central — assuming that no deals have been made but not yet announced.

Also, Ubaldo Jimenez has passed a physical and is said to be ready to join the Indians in Boston on Tuesday, although it is not clear when he might be ready to make his first appearance for the Tribe, after working an inning last night in San Diego and laboring through 45 pitches.

If any late deals are announced, we will have it for you here, but if not, the sum total of the additions for the offensively-struggling Tribe were a decent outfielder in Fukudome and a pitcher in Jimenez.

Alrighty then.
