CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have traded infielder Mark DeRosa to the St. Louis Cardinals for right-handed reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later.

DeRosa, who the Indians acquired from the Chicago Cubs in a trade last offseason, was hitting .270 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs.

He can play all over the infield, which makes him a perfect fit for the Cardinals. St. Louis has been trying to fill at hole at third base this season because Troy Glaus has been out with an injured shoulder.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa has also been juggling middle infielders for much of the season.

Perez has a 4.18 ERA in 29 appearances with a 1-1 record and one save.
