Tribe completes trade with Brewers

Left-hander Chuck Lofgren didn’t stick with the Brewers after they claimed him from the Indians in December’s Rule 5 Draft, so the two clubs worked out a trade.

The Brewers will retain possession of Logren. In exchange, the Tribe will receive Minor League right-hander Omar Aguilar.

Aguilar, 25, spent ’09 at Class A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville, going a combined 3-1 with a 4.72 ERA and 14 saves in 41 relief appearances. He also pitched nine games in the Arizona Fall League. He was outrighted off the Brewers’ 40-man roster in January.

Since being selected by the Brewers in the 30th round of the 2005 Draft, Aguilar has posted a Minor League record of 13-9 with 40 saves in 136 appearances, including six starts. He has struck out 215 and walked 104 in 186 innings pitched.

Lofgren went a combined 9-11 with a 4.15 ERA in 25 starts between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus last year. He was trying to win a job in the Brewers’ Opening Day bullpen.


How hard can this guy throw?

He throws hard — mid to upper 90’s and has touched triple digits. Commanding his fastball as well as his breaking ball is a different story though.

25 and still in Single A? Sounds like he has had some issues. At the same time, Lofgren probably would have been 8th-to-10th on the starting depth chart, so it’s really not a huge issue.

Please ignore my previous comment–I read the article too fast. I didn’t see that he had reached AA midseason. My bad!

So they ended up with compensation. This is some better move other than longing over useless discussions


I don’t know much about this sport as here in India we don’t have this game so popular so we never get tacked with it.

Still the article i loving one and yes i learned something from it. Stumblerz

I am sure both the Tribe and Brewers were happy with the way things have worked out for both of them!! With the Brewers retaining their left hander Chuck Lofgren and the Tribe getting the talented Minor League right-hander Omar Aguilar who is very good in his own right ? so both clubs will have no complains and the players will so be happy!! It?s good to see clubs ironing out their differences in so amicable a manner!! Thimothy | Armada skis
