The Chris Johnson Houston Astros Trade Link Dump

Here's what they're saying about the Houston Astros trading Chris Johnson to the Arizona Diamondbacks for infielder Bobby Borchering and outfielder Marc Krauss:

This is what John Sickels had to say about the Borchering and Krauss back in January:

12) Bobby Borchering, 1B-3B, Grade C+: Paired with Davidson and a similar profile as a power hitter, but with even worse contact problems and a weaker glove. Still young enough to improve.


16) Marc Krauss, OF, Grade C+: I think he's better than he looked last year, but will be more of a platoon/role player than a future regular.
