Wesley M. Hodges (born September 14, 1984 in Chattanooga, Tennessee) is an American professional baseball first baseman. He has yet to make his MLB debut.

History[edit]

In High School he broke a bone in his wrists, so despite being right handed, switched to batting with his left hand. [1]

Baseball career[edit]

Hodges attended college at Georgia Institute of Technology and played on the baseball team there for three seasons. The Cleveland Indians selected Hodges in the second round of the 2006 MLB Draft. He played for the Kinston Indians in 2007 and the Akron Aeros in 2008.[2]

He was a member of the Indians 40 man roster, until he was designated for assignment on July 27, 2010.[3]

On August 3, 2010, Hodges was claimed off waivers by the Colorado Rockies.[4]

On August 5, 2010, Hodges was re-claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Indians. Hodges was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on November 3, 2010, removing him from the 40-man roster. Hodges was released by the Indians on June 7, 2011.
