Hunter Pence Traded To Phillies

11

I'll let somebody else do the full writeup later, but I thought we should get something up about it. The core pieces in the deal are first baseman Jonathan Singleton and right-handed starting pitcher Jarred Cosart, both top 50 prospects on Baseball America's midseason list for 2011. Both prospects have very high ceilings, but both are young players in Class A-Advanced, so it will likely be at least a year before they see time in the majors. They are not safe prospects, but they have the potential to become impact players. Two other players to be named later are coming back in the trade, but we don't yet know which prospects they are.

Astros Claim RHP Cesar Carrillo From Padres

+

According to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle, the Astros have claimed right-handed pitcher and former first round draft pick Cesar Carrilllo from the Padres. The 26-year old righthander was named the 88th best prospect in baseball by Baseball America back in 2006, but he has never performed well in his minor league career, with a 5.06 career earned run average and career K/9 to BB/9 rates of 6.1 to 3.4 respectively. His fastball sits in the low to mid 90s and he also features a curveball and changeup. Edwin Maysonet was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Carrillo, who will not be joining the big league club before the end of the season.
