Indians make another deal
The Indians have made another trade involving minor-league players acquiring infielder/outfielder Torsten Boss from Baltimore in exchange for pitcher Preston Guilmet.
Boss, 23, opened the season at the Orioles’ Class-A affiliate in Frederick, where he was 1 for 3 with a double and run scored in one game. He spent last season in Class-A Delmarva and hit .238 with seven home runs and 45 RBI in 106 games. Boss was an eighth-round selection by the Orioles in the 2012 draft out of Michigan State. He has been assigned to the Tribe’s Class-A affiliate in Carolina.
Guilmet, who was an ninth-round pick by Cleveland in 2009, was designated for assignment on March 30. He spent 34 days with Indians last year in various stints and appeared in four games. He pitched 5 1/3 innings and had a 10.13 ERA.
