Jordan Bastian of MLB.com is reporting that the Indians have acquired infielder Justin Sellers from the Dodgers in exchange for cash. To make room for Sellers on the roster, the Indians designated first baseman David Cooper for assignment.
Sellers, 28, has a career .578 OPS over three seasons with the Dodgers. He has played mostly at shortstop, but has spent time at second base and third base as well.
Sellers was drafted by the Athletics in the sixth round of the 2005 draft. He was sent to the Cubs in February 2009 along with Richie Robnett for Michael Wuertz. The Dodgers purchased him from the Cubs two months later.
