The following deal has been agreed upon
CLE sends 1B Austin Jones (A-), CL Jon Kent (AA) and SP Peter Tago (via COL AAA affiliate Albuquerque)
SD sends SP Steven Matz
It's been no secret that the Tribe have been trying to upgrade the bottom of our rotation with a bit more of a long term piece (even though Joe Kelly has done well in his time there) and we feel as though Matz fills that role. Tago was going on waivers when we got him anyway and while we like Jones and Kent, we feel the immediate upgrade to the rotation is more helpful for us considering our surprising start to the season.
We hope that Matz' struggles will go away with a change of scenery as his k/9 and bb/9 numbers are still very respectable.
Thank you Sean for the easy negotiations!
