The Colorado Rockies are shipping utility infielder Jamey Carroll to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named, freeing up money to pursue Tadahito Iguchi.
Carroll turns 34 in February and his two (m) million dollar plus salary were deemed expendable even though the Rockies lost starting second baseman Kaz Matsui to the Houston Astros.
Carroll is a fan favorite for his all-out play. Last season he backed up the starters at second, third and shortstop while his steady defense helped the Rockies reach their first World Series.
Carroll told The Denver Post that he was comfortable in Denver and didn't seek a trade.
