Rangers Acquire Kelvin De La Cruz from Indians

The Cleveland Indians have traded Kelvin De La Cruz to the Texas Rangers, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. De La Cruz is the the left-handed pitcher the Indians DFA'd to make room for the recent Casey Kotchman signing.

De La Cruz, 23, has 6 seasons of minor ball under his belt, all within the Indians' system. He spent 2011 in double-A Akron, where he went 5-6 with a 4.19 ERA over 86 innings.

The Rangers are clearly getting a project here. The deal is for cash considerations, according to Jordan Bastian.
