Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Indians have acquired pitcher Nick Maronde from the Angels for cash considerations. To make room for him on the roster, the Indians moved Jason Giambi to the 60-day disabled list, per Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer.

Maronde, 24, was designated for assignment by the Indians on July 10. He had been up and down between the majors and minors with the Angels, appearing in 12 games at the big league level with a 12.79 ERA over 6 1/3 innings. The lefty has showed subpar control over his career, but does have the ability to miss bats, which will get him at least a few more opportunities to prove himself.

    I thought Jason Giambi retired like eight years ago.

    Cleveland fans probably wish they hadn’t burned their Maronde jerseys after he crushed them by taking his talents to Anaheim.

    A big time talent that could be a gem if the right pitching coach can get him straightened out. This is a good risk for Cleveland.

    This guy and his 12.79 era are one hell of a find, I’ll bet teams were waiting in line to get him.
