Love this trade. It’s a right handed arm out of the pen. He has had a great year so far. A 2.77 ERA and a very impressive 0.69 (nice) WHIP. Also love the fact that he has 3 game finishes. That tells me this is a guy that could pitch almost any spot that you would need him. He is making a ton of people miss right now with a SO/9 of 13.8. The Phillies needed a guy like him, a guy that can come in and won’t even put the ball in play a ton.
No word yet on what they gave up. I assume nothing crazy since it still isn’t out. More details to come
