Brent Lillibridge is on the move again.
Traded from the White Sox to the Red Sox in the Kevin Youkilis deal and then almost immediately designated for assignment by Boston, Lillibridge has now been dealt to the Indians for minor leaguer Jose De La Torre.
He’s expected to join the Indians’ active roster and will serve in his usual utility man role. De La Torre is a 26-year-old Double-A middle reliever, so this is pretty close to a giveaway deal.
Lillibridge had an out of nowhere power surge for the White Sox last season, but he’s a 28-year-old career .212 hitter with a .630 OPS in 295 games overall.
