Cleveland • The Cleveland Indians have acquired left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Indians sent minor league infielder Juan Herrera to St. Louis on Tuesday in exchange for Rzepczynski, who Cleveland hopes will help them get out left-handed hitters.

The 27-year-old is 9-17 with a 4.20 ERA in 177 career games for Toronto and St. Louis. Lefties have batted .224 against Rzepczynski, who pitched 2 2-3 scoreless innings for the Cardinals in the 2011 World Series.

Rzepczynski has split this season between St. Louis and Triple-A Memphis. In two stints with the Cardinals, he posted a 7.84 ERA in 11 games. He has limited lefties to a .185 average in the minors.

Cleveland's only other left-handed reliever is Rich Hill. Herrera batted .275 in 39 games for Class A Mahoning Valley.
