Jordan Bastian of 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.

      Shhhh, anything that helps the Tigers stay in 1st is a good thing (except injuries, of course…oh, and rehab trips….and jail time…and family issues…you know what I mean).

      5′ 10″, 160 #. He’d better try to look like a badass.

        I don’t know….the spider web on the elbow definitely suggests badass.

        I think he’s probably in a gang. Plus knuckle tattoos. The only reason you get knuckle tattoos is so that the people you’re punching in the face know why you’re punching them (You know, like F*** YOU! or LIFE SUKS or PORK CHOP or MY NAME IS ANTONIO ALFONSECA AND I HAVE A LOT OF EXTRA FINGERS)

        he’s been bought and sold for cash twice. maybe the tattoos are a new type of barcode.

      Really? My eyes said “Tool”

    Even if they go an utility infielder, Elliot Johnson would have served well, Mike Aviles can handle that job. So this makes no sense. He’s just going to stay on the Columbus roster.

    Start working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do…….

    Anyone remember when this guy was arrested for doing wheelies on a motorcycle? Good pick up, Tribe!

    his tattoos look like disney, compared to that neck tat that Molina has.
