Jim Thome approves trade, returns to Indians

Big Jim circles the bags at Comerica. Oh, yeah.

It's official, Jim Thome has waived his no-trade clause to allow the Indians to acquire him from the Twins for the stretch run for a player to be named later. More details momentarily.

[UPDATE (Ryan)]: The PTBNL, according to Jordan Bastian, will be chosen by the Twins by October 15th from a list of players agreed to by the two clubs. Thome will be in the lineup in time for Friday's game, and will wear his customary #25.
