Fresh off putting down a successful suicide squeeze bunt attempt in what will likely be his final at bat as a Cleveland Indian, Aaron Cunningham was designated for assignment today by the Indians in order to add recently-acquired IF/OF Brent Lillibridge to the roster. Lillibridge was acquired from the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday in a trade that sent minor league reliever Jose de la Torre to Boston. Lillibridge is expected to take over Cunningham's role as a late-inning defensive replacement, though Lillibridge can also play some infield positions as well.
Cunningham, who was acquired for minor league pitcher Cory Burns back in December, batted just .175 in 97 at bats this season. He appeared in 72 games, most of those as a defensive replacement in left field. He will have to clear waivers in order to be assigned to Triple-A Columbus.
As for Lillibridge, he was traded to the Red Sox in the Kevin Youkilis deal on June 24 and traded to the Indians exactly one month later. He has appeared in 59 games this season, posting a .165 average in 79 at bats. Last season, Lillibridge hit 13 home runs for the White Sox in just 186 at bats.
Lillibridge will wear #1, which has been so proudly worn by Kosuke Fukudome and Luis Valbuena over the last few seasons.
