Another Royal traded

Postby beerman648 » Tue Jul 25, 2006 10:02 pm

Brewers acquired infielder Tony Graffanino from the Royals for LHP Jorge De La Rosa.
The Brewers aren't giving up yet. Still, it had become clear that De La Rosa wasn't in their plans, meaning that they sacrificed little to shore up their infield here. In other words, don't rule out a Carlos Lee trade just yet. Graffanino should bump Chris Barnwell from the roster and see action at third, short and second. He could play at least three times per week until Corey Koskie returns -- if Koskie returns -- giving him a little value in NL-only leagues. He was hitting .268/.346/.409 in 220 at-bats for the Royals. [/b]

If the Royals send down or DFA a pitcher in this deal, it could allow them to bring up Alex Gordon and let him get Graffy's ABs.
