ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes reports that the Boston Red Sox have traded utility player Brent Lillibridge to the Cleveland Indians for minor league reliever Jose De La Torre:

This marks the second time Lillibridge has been traded this season. The 28-year-old went to Boston in the Kevin Youkilis deal exactly one month ago on June 24. In 10 games with the Red Sox, Lillibridge went a meager 2-for-16. He adds bench depth to the Indians as they attempt to climb back into the playoff race. Cleveland stands 4 games behind the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central and 3.5 games behind the Oakland Athletics for the final Wild Card spot.

Jose De La Torre is a 5'9" right-handed reliever who posted a 2.91 ERA in 55.2 innings across Double-A and Triple-A this season. The 26-year-old spent six seasons in the New York Mets' minor league system before joining the Indians in 2012.
