Mujica to the Padres, and more

The Indians have found a taker for Ed Mujica. The Padres are set to announce this morning that they have acquired the right-hander from the Tribe. The Indians will receive a player to be named or cash.

Mujica is out of Minor League options and did not win a spot in the Indians’ bullpen this spring. He has an 8.10 ERA in nine Cactus appearances, though he has improved a bit recently.

In 33 career appearances with the Tribe, Mujica, who turns 25 in May, went 3-3 with a 6.04 ERA. Mujica has a live fastball that he’s never really been able to get consistency out of at the Major League level. He has a career 3.35 ERA in the Minors, with just 60 walks in 231 1/3 innings.

UPDATE: And here’s an interesting twist. Right-hander Jae Kuk Ryu is going back to the Padres, less than a week after the Indians claimed him off waivers. That waiver claim was voided by Major League Baseball. Not sure what that’s all about, but I’ll look into it.

Also this morning, Vinnie Chulk was reassigned to Minor League camp.

UPDATE No. 2: Sounds like the Ryu situation involves either a medical problem (he did have arthroscopic surgery performed on his elbow last summer) or some other technicality. No official word from the Indians.

Best of luck Edward! Sorry, but i am glad see him going else where because most of the time he wasn’t that great.

Is this real or an April Fool’s Day thing?

I have been traded for Ed Mujica? I thought it would take more than Ed Mujica to aquire such talent. It’s cool though, glad to be home! Hello Cleveland!

Good Luck Ed! Sorry things didn’t work out here but maybe they will in San Diego.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
