Indians trade for Angels left-handed pitcher Maronde for PTBNL or cash

By Stephanie Storm Published: July 13, 2014

The Indians acquired pitcher Nick Maronde in a trade from the Los Angeles Angels for a Player to be Named Later or cash considerations. To clear a roster spot on the 40-man roster, Tribe designated hitter Jason Giambi was moved to the 60-day Disabled List.

Maronde is an interesting pickup for the Indians, as the 6-foot-3 left-hander was originally a third-round pick by the Angels in 2011. But after failing as a starter, Maronde still struggled after being converted to a reliever.

In a classic case of a player in need of a change of scenery, the Indians picked him up in the hopes they can turn him around with a little patience and make out in the end like they did with misunderstood pitcher Trevor Bauer.

Maronde will be sent to join one of the organization’s higher-level minor league clubs. However, there’s no word yet from the front office regarding which one.
