The Chicago White Sox trade:

 

SP Matt Cain + retain 75% of his contract (ML; waivers... was DFA'ed after trade to make room on roster for replacement pitcher)

 

The Atlanta Braves trade:

 

2B Matthew Campbell (AA)

 

We signed Cain this offseason to help fill out our rotation while we continue to wait for some of our pitching prospects to season in the minors and ready themselves for their eventual call up.  Cain has had exactly the kind of first half we hoped for, with a low HR/9, on pace for a 2.7 WAR, and very consistent.  But we're seeking additional MI depth in our minors and we're ready to start calling up a couple more of our pitching prospects to fill out our rotation for the future.  Swapping Cain for Campbell helps us accomplish both these things at once.

 

Thanks, Brenton, for the deal, and best of luck the rest of the way in 2019.

Atlanta confirms.  this allows us to move our most inconsistent arm, Kelly, into the pen.

 

Thanks Hodges, as always!  Go Underdog Records!
