OF - Jeff Francoeur $5.3M (2013)
does this trade for 2 reasons. MLB depth with Boggs and Dominguez an to get rid of Francoeur who I would have traded for a bag of balls! Getting Kubel fills my open LF spot. Cosart is a great young arm but expendable with Bradley, Thornburg, and Peralta all coming aboard via trade earlier in the week. Cosart's spot in the farm will be taken by Rasmussen. Here is to hoping Dominguez produces at the MLB level.
Thanks to Atlanta for the trade.
to confirm deal.
