The Padres traded 27 year old LHP Wade LeBlanc to the Florida Marlins in exchange for C John Baker. He hit .271 over the last 4 years, as a back up catcher. He will serve as a backup catcher but this move mainly opens up a spot in the rotation. Which super-prospect will it be?
Casey Kelly? Joe Wieland? Robby Erlin? I don't know, probably Kelly, based on him being in the organization more. This whole move is only to get one of these guys in.
I will have new posts up soon about:
- A new CBA? Whats in store for Heater?
- Who gave David Robertson and Michael Young(1st place too!) MVP votes???
- New Draft Prospective.
- Top 10 draft prospects.
