Broussard traded, Hollandsworth next?

The Indians made another trade in an effort to build for the future. First baseman Ben Broussard was dealt along with cash to the Seattle Mariners for outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and a player to be named. Choo, 24, hit .323 with 13 homers and 48 RBI with Tacoma, the Mariners’ Triple-A affiliate. Choo, who has almost identical stats to Broussard, was ranked as Seattle’s seventh-best prospect and will join the Indians roster right away. Being a left-hander, Choo will play against right-handed pitching. He also will bring some speed to the team, having stolen 26 bases this season.

The move may signal the end of Todd Hollandsworth’s short stint with the Tribe.

Interesting that the Mariners traded for two first basemen. Although, with the news that they will designate Carl Everett for assignment, Broussard or Perez may see some time as their new DH.
