The Indians have reportedly acquired Kenny Lofton from the Rangers for Max Ramirez.
Ramirez, who was picked up from the Braves for Bob Wickman last year, has a very good bat but probably isn't going to last at catcher. Especially if the Rangers also get Jarrod Saltalamacchia, they'll probably be trying Ramirez at first base in the minors pretty soon. He could be ready to hit in the majors by 2009.

I'm not sure if this does anything for his fantasy value because I still see him as a part time outfielder for the tribe.
