Indians trade Peralta to division rival Detroit


The Detroit Tigers started to fill an important hole in their lineup at third base, by acquiring Jhonny Peralta from the Cleveland Indians for lefthander Giovanni Soto, a minor leaguer.

The 28-year-old Peralta, will fill in for the injured Brandon Inge, who is out with a broken hand. But Peralta can also play shortstop.

The Reds came into the contest trailing the Cardinals by a game or just percentage points in the standings. But it has been a rare occurance for the Reds to be outside of the top spot in the Central. Since May 16, Cincinnati has spent 51 days in first place or tied for first with St. Louis.

Cincinnati’s top four hitters in the lineup, Phillips, Orlando Cabrera, Votto and Rolen, finished the game at 15-for-22 with eight runs and seven RBI’s as they matched a season-high with 19 hits.


Josh Tomlin, another young pitcher in the Indians farm system that is good, didn’t act like he was afraid to face the New York Yankees hard-hitting lineup led by Alex Rodriguez.

Tomlin was pitching a shutout into the eighth inning and won his major league debut with Cleveland, 4-1 Tuesday night.

Alex Rodriguez went o for 4 on his 35th birthday. That coveted 600th homer can wait another day.

Strasburg out indefinitely with inflamed shoulder

Stephen Strasburg has come face-to-face with the first snag in his major league career.

He was warming up at Nationals Park for a start against the Atlanta Braves,and after a six pitches, Washington pitching coach Steve McCatty  noticed he could not get loose. Strasburg told McCatty that he felt stiff.

McCatty told general manager Mike Rizzo immediately and he was scratched from the lineup.

Strasburg was checked out by a team doctor and sent out for an MRI and X-ray exam. Mike Rizzo said the tests showed no structural problems and that the diagnosis is inflammation.

The 22-year-old Strasburg will be considered day-to-day.

In nine starts this season, Strasburg is 5-2 with a 2.32 ERA, 75 strikeouts and 15 walks in 54 1/3 innings.

The Nationals have been quite careful with their “Franchise Pitcher”. They’ve said all along that his season will end  when he reaches 160 innings whether it be in August or September. So far, including his stint in the minors, he has thrown 109 2/3 innings.
