Winn Traded....and Olivo....and Villone

Randy Winn has been traded to the San Francisco Giants for Jesse Fopert and Yorvit Torrealba.

We'll get more details later, but Fopert was a top pitching prospect before Tommy John surgery. He's a young arm, so we'll see. Torrealba is a backup catcher.

UPDATE:

Miguel Olivio traded to the San Diego Padres for catcher Miguel Ojeda and reliever Nathanel Mateo.


So far, I think Bavasi has done pretty well. We'll give a more detailed reaction after all the dust has settled.

UPDATE:
The Mariners have dealt Ron Villone to Florida for Yorman Bazardo and Mike Flannery.



My general thought at this point is that Bavasi is building an army. Getting rid of Villone's contract is impressive.
