Chicago Pirates and Cincinnati have negotiated a trade -
Chicago gets Byron Buxton OF MIN - $0.3
Cincinnati gets Sonny Gray SP OAK - (2nd) $0.5 Tony Watson RP PIT - (3rd) $1.0 Starling Marte LF PIT (3rd) $1.0 Nick Travieso SP (Reds) - $0.3
CAP Implications - Pirates -$2.5 Orioles +$2.5
I wanted this trade to give me 3 current players who impact the coming season and that I have some substantial control off. Gray is an up and comer with solid stuff who should be a top of the rotation type guy soon. All players help fill various voids due to losses in free agency in case that I cannot get them back. It also brings back home Travieso who is going well in the minors. It is tough losing the top prospect like Buxton but I feel the return I got for him helps offset the loss. I am more than comfortable with this deal.
