Rangers Send:

SP Chris Farrell MLB

 

Blue Jays Send:

OF Ruben Sierra Jr. AAA

SP Rob Schmitt AA

1B Donald Taylor AA (AL East Winter League Squad)

 

The Blue Jays have now successfully traded all but 2 of their WL AL East squad members. After moving out David Price, the Jays were looking to add a 3/4 SP to ease the development of our top pitching prospects, Pickett, Nicholas and McCutc.

 

We see Farrell as a quality mid rotation piece that can allow Pickett/Nicholas to fight for the #5 SP position, and leave McCutc to pitch a full year in AAA.

 

Sierra is a solid AAA outfielder, but we are quiet deep at OF, and Schmitt and Taylor are quality upper minors prospects who we did not include in the deal until Kevin negotiated them in after some lengthy talks back and forth.

 

We wish the Rangers well in bringing down the Big Bad Angels and Mariners.

Texas GM confirms the deal.

 

We feel that our starting rotation is intact and Farrell was the odd man out.

Sierra Jr will give us some depth in OF.

Schmitt and Taylor help with the rebuilding of our farm system.

 

Thanks, Mitch for your patience in making this deal.
