Indians Send RHP Edward Mujica To Padres

Posted: Updated:

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have traded right-hander Edward Mujica to the San Diego Padres for future considerations or cash. General Manager Kevin Towers announced the deal Wednesday. The Indians will receive a player or cash for Mujica.

The 24-year-old Mujica split the 2008 season between Cleveland and Triple-A Buffalo. With the Indians, he was 3-2 with a 6.75 ERA and had 27 strikeouts in 33 appearances.

Mujica is 3-3 record with 6.04 ERA with 46 strikeouts in 53 relief outings for Cleveland (2006-08). He was signed by the Indians as a undrafted free agent on October 22, 2001.

Mujica is 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in nine spring training appearances.

Right-hander Jae Kuk Ryu, claimed on waivers by Cleveland from the Padres on Thursday, was returned to San Diego. The deal was voided by major league baseball, and the Indians would not comment on any injury concerns with the 25-year-old South Korean.
