2017 Tiger Transactions

Recommended Posts

How's this for being prompt?

A small backlog to catch up on:

Venezuelan righty Wildensen Yanez, who pitched 2 years in the VSL, then this year in the DSL (missing the last 51 days of the season), has hung 'em up

Still catching up:

Out of options next year (also from Eddie)

  • Mark Lowe
  • Cameron Maybin
  • Jose Iglesias
  • Andrew Romine
  • Steven Moya
  • Dixon Machado
  • Anthony Gose

Ruben Alaniz re-signs

Nice birthday present for Venezuelan LF Luis Torrealba:  released just after his 20th birthday.  Formerly held in high regard for his power potential, had 2 seasons with the VSL Tigers before setting the GCL afire this year with a .526 OPS.  That'll do it.  (On the other hand, this kind of isolated transaction makes me wonder if maybe something else was involved besides on-the-field lack of productivity [shrugs shoulders]).

Per Matt Eddy, rhp Marco Jimenez signed.  Can't find him anywhere, so assume he's a Dominican or Venezuelan teenager.

Hope he's a closer candidate, as that would seriously further my project of having all 9 closers in the Org named Jimenez.

(With Joe, Eduardo and now Marco, we'd be 1/3 there.)

wow.

Didn't expect to see Leon sent down till the end, nor Gose.

Lowe was kinda obvious based on his last couple of outings.
