Angels trade Mike Scioscia's son to Cubs for Wayne Gretzky's son

Trevor Gretzky (far left) was traded on Thursday.

These guys probably won't find themselves making cameos on staples of their generation such as The Simpsons and D2: The Mighty Ducks.

The Angels and Cubs swapped the sons of a pair of Los Angeles sports stars of the 1980s on Thursday, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.

The Cubs shipped minor-league outfielder Trevor Gretzky, whose dad is longtime NHL great Wayne Gretzky, to L.A. in exchange for first baseman Matt Scioscia. He, of course, is the son of former Dodgers star and current Angels manager Mike Scioscia, who didn't have much to say about the deal to Shaikin:

"It's part of baseball. It's a good opportunity for Matt ... Let's talk about our game. I just gave you a quote. We're good."

Gretzky, 21, owns a .288/.335/.332 line in 272 plate appearances across three levels in two professional seasons. He topped out at Low-A Kane County in 2013. Though he's mostly played in left field, Gretzky has appeared at first base 14 times, all of which came in 2012.

Scioscia, 25, is a .222/.264/.280 hitter in 484 minor-league plate appearances. He reached High-A in 2013 after beginning the year in rookie-league ball.
