Trade deadline moves

For the third consecutive year, the Indians were significant participants in trade deadline moves. Jhonny Peralta went first, three days before the deadline. Austin Kearns went the night before, while pitchers Jake Westbrook and Kerry Wood were shipped in two separate trades hours before the July 31 deadline.[1]

On July 28, Peralta and cash were sent to the Detroit Tigers for Class A left-handed pitcher Giovanni Soto. Luis Valbuena was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take Peralta's roster spot.[2]

On July 30, Kearns was sent to the New York Yankees for a player to be named later.[3]

On July 31, Westbrook was part of a three-team trade involving the Indians, St. Louis Cardinals, and San Diego Padres. He went to the Cardinals, while the Indians received Class AA right-handed pitcher Corey Kluber from San Diego.[4] Later in the day, the Tribe sent Wood and cash to the New York Yankees for a player to be named or cash.[5]
