The Indians have dealt veteran third baseman Jhonny Peralta and cash to the Tigers for Class A left-hander Giovanni Soto.

Peralta joins an injury depleted Tigers team looking to get back into the thick of the AL Central race. The Tigers lost Brandon Inge to a broken bone in his hand.

Peralta is making $4.6 million this season. No word yet on how much of his remaining contract the Indians are picking up.

Peralta batted .246 with 23 doubles, seven homers and 43 RBIs for the Tribe this year. He is a career .264 hitter over eight seasons with the Tribe. He made the move from shortstop to third base last year.

Soto, 19, has spent this season with Class A West Michigan, going 6-6 with a 2.61 ERA in 16 starts. He has struck out 76 and walked 25 in 82 2/3 innings and hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his 16 starts.

Luis Valbuena has been called up from Triple-A Columbus to take Peralta's active roster spot.

So basically everyone but the guy from Ohio likes it for the Tigers. LOL

It's a guy who needs a change of scenery for a minor prospect. Doesn't hurt either side. Not sure why there always has to be a winner and loser.

I like JP he is a good guy. But he's not good anymore. Way to inconsistent.

I like it for the Tigers, he's got some pop. Looks like he got kinda fat though over the past couple seasons. Nice pickup regardless.

Nice too that Cleveland is picking up most of the salary.

No crap, I'm saying Peralta hasn't done anything this year and that's why I think the Indians did better

A solid pick up who'll briefly replace Brandon Inge at third base.

anybody know anything about Soto...how highly rated a prospect is he?...as for JP the tigers get a decent player...he's not great, he occasionally comes through, he'll never be in 2008 form again but he'll probly remain a .250ish hitter with a little pop...don't know anything about Soto so I can't say how I think the teams made out...but for the tigers they got a solid replacement for Inge...when inge is on he is light years better than peralta but with the year inge has put together it's not a big downgrade...it was a NECESSARY move for the Tigers if they want to stay in this thing...and probly the best they could get...

very good move for the tigers, especially with the injuries they have been dealng with

It is an OK deal for both parties.

O think for the Tigers, it was a low cost deal that DD made for appearance purposes. I think he knows that with all of the injuries that the Tigers are out of it. However, he doesn't want the team or fans think he has given up. Instead of overpaying for mediocre vets or rentals, he dwalt off a low/mid level spec for low risk Peralta. Shows he is "trying" to improve, but doesn't give up any key specs.

If Peralta happens to work out, great. If not, Cleveland picked up most of tab for this year and then Tigers buy him out. Nothing to lose for Tigers, and Cleveland gets something for him.

Win-win
