Cleveland and New York match up on a trade, as the Indians send struggling pitcher Allie Reynolds to the Yankees in exchange for second baseman Joe Gordon.

Reynolds, who was 11-15 in 1946, will go 19-8 the next season in the Bronx and will go on to win 131 games for the Yankees over the next eight seasons, five times making the All-Star team. The 31-year-old Gordon, the 1942 American League MVP, hit .210 in 1946 but will hit .262 over his final four MLB seasons with Cleveland, making three All-Star teams himself and helping the Indians win the 1948 World Series.
