Lillibridge traded to Indians for pitching prospect
ARLINGTON -- Eight days after the Red Sox designated utility man Brett Lillibridge for assignment, they found a new home for him, trading him to the Cleveland Indians for Minor League righty Jose De La Torre.

Lillibridge was one of the players the Red Sox acquired in the deal that sent Kevin Youkilis to the White Sox, but there wasn't much playing time for him in Boston.

The Red Sox assigned De La Torre to Triple-A Pawtucket.

This season, the 26-year-old De La Torre is 8-1 with two saves and a 2.91 ERA in 34 games at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus.
