Traded OF Todd Hollandsworth to the Cincinnati Reds for a PTBNL or Cash
The Indians are in full tryout mode, so there's no point in keeping a spare part like Hollandsworth around. Todd served his purpose with the Indians, and put in a couple good weeks of every day play while both Jason Michaels and Casey Blake were on the Disabled List.
Recalled OF Franklin Gutierrez from Buffalo
The young get younger. Gutierrez has been on a hot streak of late, hitting .368/.429/.684 in August, but his overall numbers don't scream for playing time. He'll probably steal some at-bats from Jason Michaels down the stretch, and should be playing right field against left-handers.
