Thome Trade to Cleveland


MINNEAPOLIS — It’s Jim Thome Wind-Up Walker Day tomorrow at Target Field, but the man they are honoring won’t be wearing the home color.

The Twins placed the member of the 600 HR club on waivers this Monday and he was then claimed by the Cleveland Indians. It was all up to him to accept or veto a trade with his No-Trade Clause. new came down moments ago that Thome has in fact accepted a trade that would return him to the place he started his career: the Cleveland Indians.

The details of the trade are not immediately available.
