Brett Wallace, Chris Johnson Sent To AAA; Jimmy Paredes & Brian Bogusevic Called Up

287

Really interesting move. I'm intrigued by Paredes because he has a nice power-speed combo, but is this too early? Thoughts?

Bourn deal to Braves 'Done'

Ken Rosenthal reports that it will be announced 10am ET. Four minor leaguers will be sent to Houston.

Hunter Pence Traded To Phillies

11

I'll let somebody else do the full writeup later, but I thought we should get something up about it. The core pieces in the deal are first baseman Jonathan Singleton and right-handed starting pitcher Jarred Cosart, both top 50 prospects on Baseball America's midseason list for 2011. Both prospects have very high ceilings, but both are young players in Class A-Advanced, so it will likely be at least a year before they see time in the majors. They are not safe prospects, but they have the potential to become impact players. Two other players to be named later are coming back in the trade, but we don't yet know which prospects they are.

Injured Braves + Beltran Gone = HUNTing season for ATL and PHI !

I saw that the Braves just placed both OF Shafer and their catcher McCann on the DL today. Might this further increase ATL's interest in acquiring Hunter and/or Michael Bourn? I certaintly hope so!

A lot of stuff going on the past few days is exciting and hard to keep up with. Glad for Cedeño.

Hunter Pence Might Want to Pack His Bags

Under one of Buster's tweets, it reads, "Sources: HOU shows willingness to trade Pence; rival executives expect he will move. Braves have prospects to make deal happen; we'll see."

Keppinger Traded; Altuve Called Up

126

Talk about surprising moves. Jeff Keppinger is traded to the Giants for a couple of pitchers, Henry Sosa and Jason Stofel. The most surprising move, "Mighty Mouse" Jose Altuve is called up from AA to become the starting second baseman.
