Houston/Cincinnati Trade
« on: November 25, 2012, 07:39:39 PM »
:HOU: gives:
SP - Alexander Torres
RP - Rafael Soriano $11.7m (2013)
$6M in 2012 Cap (attached to Soriano)

:CIN: gives:
SP - Taylor Guerreri
CI - Seth Mejias-Brean



:HOU: accepts. 
We pick up a pitcher who we think might have ace potential (or high-end #2).  We are thrilled to cut over $5M in 2012 cap space, as well.  Torres and Soriano are both nice players, but we couldn't pass on Taylor's arm.

:CIN: agree.

Taking aim at competing in 2013, Guerreri and Mejias-Brean do little to nothing to contributing.  Tampa is notoriously slow bringing up young pitching, meaning Guerreri could be more like 3 or 4 years from real contributions.

In return for dealing two very talented specs, I get a near ready SP/RP in Torres who, if he can limit his BB/9 could be a very successful pitcher.  Having a strong K/9 and GB%, I am hopeful his stature does not keep him from staying a starter.  Also acquired, is a closer looking for a home.  Even as setup man, Soriano would have value due to high Ks total.  And the kicker is the possibility that Soriano ends 2012 as a Draft Pick Compensation worthy RP.  The $6m towards his remaining contract makes the price tag on Soriano stomachable.

Thanks to :HOU: for working to find agreeable terms.
