Indians Acquire Lofton

Posted by svedda on July 27, 2007

Today the Cleveland Indians traded for Kenny Lofton of the Texas Rangers. Lofton this going into today’s game is batting .303 with 7 HRs, 23 RBIs, and 21 SBs. In return for Lofton the Texas Rangers acquired minor league C Max Rodriguez. The Indians acquired Rodriguez from the Atlanta Braves last offseason for Bob Wickman. 

This is Loftons 3rd stint with Cleveland playing for them in 1991-1996, then 1998-2001. Tonight in his first plate appeareance as an Indian in 6 years, he got a standing ovation. So far he is 2-4 in the game with a RBI and a SO. The Indians are hoping that Lofton can help them make it to the world Series and hopefully win the World Series.
