CLEVELAND (AP) — Jim Thome has swung back to the Cleveland Indians.
The slugger accepted a trade from Minnesota on Thursday night to return to the Indians, the team he started with and one hoping its career home run leader can help them run down the first-place Detroit Tigers in the AL Central.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jim Thome has heard the waiver rumors just like everyone else over the past few days. And just like everyone else, the Minnesota Twins slugger is waiting to hear where he will finish his season, and possibly, his career.
Jim Thome's back still aches in the morning, just as it has for the past 10 years or so. The older he gets, the more the Minnesota Twins slugger has to do to get those discs and muscles warmed up and ready for another day on the diamond.
