MLB: Indians reach blockbuster deal with the Colorado Rockies
The Cleveland Indians have reached a blockbuster deal with the Colorado Rockies according to MLB.com.
Cleveland acquired Colorado star pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez who is thought of as the best starting pitcher available on the trade market.
In return, the Tribe sent over pitchers Alex White and Joe Gardner and first baseman-outfielder Matt McBride. The player to be named will be pitching prospect Drew Pomeranz, but the big lefty is ineligible to be officially traded until Aug. 15 due to being drafted last June.
