Shh........That sound you hear, it's the sizzlin' you get with a story hot off the presses.
The Majors 1st big trade off the season goes down in spectacular fashion.
The Anaheim Angels & The Florida Marlins agree to a 5 player trade
Going to the Marlins
A very nice gap hitting Second baseman with a good glove
He's not gonna overpower you but he'll keep the ball in the strike zone & get the hitter out with control
Defensive stalwart with a decent bat & the potential to become a gold glove CF
Going to the Angels
A more developed version of Matty Phillips, not gonna wow you but will be productive.
The main focus of the Angels, helps upgrade their weak pitching staff & at this point before free angency could end up as their staff ace.
Trade Grade B-
Both teams get what they need & even value on both sides
A key plus in this trade is that it allows the Marlins to dump some salary after some unexpected budget issues
