Indians trade Marc Rzepczynski to San Diego for Abraham Almonte

The Cleveland Indians had one last trade to sneak in just ahead of the 2015 MLB trade deadline. They traded left-handed reliever Marc “Scrabble” Rzepczynski to the San Diego Padres in exchange for 26 year old Abraham Almonte (ESPN’s Keith Law was the first to report though he misspelled Rzepczynski in his rush). Scrabble was seemingly struggling overall this season pitching...
