It was a week ago - seriously, it was last Friday - that the world learned of a big trade between the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners involving Michael Pineda, Jesus Montero and two others. The trade news was broken, the deal was analyzed quickly, the deal was analyzed in depth, and then the deal was kind of forgotten about while everybody moved on to the next thing.
Well it's worth noting that the trade still isn't official. One reason? Jesus Montero has dealt with a visa issue, preventing him from traveling to take a physical. But now that's no longer a problem. Ken Davidoff:
Jesus Montero has dealt with his visa issue and is scheduled to travel from Florida to Seattle today for his #Mariners physical.
It shouldn't be long now. And the bonus good news is that Jesus Montero has handled his visa problem, and he's still Jesus Montero, and he's still 22 years old. Wouldn't that have been something!
