Geovany Soto traded to A’s

  • C Geovany Soto traded to Oakland A’s for cash [ Link ]

NOTES: The parade of backup catchers being moved out continues with Geovany Soto being moved to the A’s.  He’s not going to be here in 2015 anyway.  Would have liked some sort of spare part at least, but it was a trade for cash.  I always liked Soto when he came up with the Cubs originally.  Shame he lost his ability to hit almost after his first season in the bigs.  Good catcher, can’t hit worth a darn, though.

C Chris Gimenez traded to Indians

  • C Chris Gimenez traded to Cleveland for $100,000 in cash [ Link ]

NOTES: Well, Gimenez I liked.  He wasn’t going to be a Pudge, but he was an OK backup.   However, likely not going to be here next season, so probably good to give him some playing time elsewhere for the rest of the season.   He was outrighted to the Rangers minors system, and with their season over, moving him elsewhere probably allows him to play in the bigs for the rest of the 2
