[October 04, 2008]  CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have acquired a minor league outfielder from the Milwaukee Brewers to complete the CC Sabathia trade.

The Indians announced Friday that they selected Michael Brantley as the player to be named in the July deal.

The 21-year-old hit .319 with 80 runs scored and 28 stolen bases in the leadoff spot at Double-A Huntsville of the Southern League.

The Indians got outfielder Matt LaPorta and pitchers Rob Bryson and Zach Jackson from Milwaukee. Sabathia went 11-2 for the Brewers and helped them reach the playoffs for the first time since 1982.
