Spider Guardians/Pirates Trade

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The following deal has been agreed upon

CLE sends SP Antonio Castillo and 3B Javier Sosa (both INTL Complex. Will promote to R)

PIT sends SP Anthony Klumpp and SP Bill Deely (both AAA)

Greg came to me with this offer and I feel like either or both could contribute to my bullpen right now. If nothing else they provide me some depth if I get ravaged with injuries and both the guys I move are a long way away.

Thanks Greg for the super easy deal

Pirates confirm SP Anthony Klumpp and SP Bill Deely (both AAA) for SP Antonio Castillo and 3B Javier Sosa.

Neither Klumpp nor Deely were in the long term plans for the Pirates and both were occupying a 40 man roster spot so the decision was made to move both for some future pieces. We see both SP Antonio Castillo and 3B Javier Sosa as being major leaguers down the road and look forward to seeing their development. Both will report to Bristol upon arrival.

Klumpp returns to Cleveland in this move and will likely get back to pitching in majors. Bill Deely is projected by my scout as a #4 or 5 starter so the Indians get a bullpen lefty for now and a potential starter for the future.

 

Thanks to the Cleveland Organization for the quick talks.
