Seanz for Nunez is a done deal....

Postby Slow Pitch » Sat Jul 31, 2004 3:18 pm

From Rotoworld:

Marlins acquired pitcher Rudy Seanez from the Royals for outfielder Abraham Nunez.
Finally, the big trade everyone has been waiting for. Seanez had a 3.91 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 23 innings since being called up. That makes him an upgrade in middle relief for the Marlins.

Man the Marlins & just stacking up for the pennant run...

All they're doing is giving up major league talent for major league talent. They're spinning their wheels.

Can they catch the Braves? They will need a healthy and effective Beckett to do so IMO.

If the Marlins are going to catch/pass the Braves they'll have to do much better head-to-head. So far this year, the Braves have owned the Fish. I'm not sure how many games they have left.

So it really doesn't matter how much the Marlins improve ... until they beat the Braves. B-)

Does Nunuez start with KC? He had a great spring training and seemed to be a hitter.

This late in the season, he could be worth a gamble if ya are in need of an Outfielder. Looks like he will get a chance to actually play now. ..

By BOB DUTTON, The Kansas City Star wrote:
Outfielder Abraham Nuñez is ticketed for regular duty with the Royals after a deadline-beating deal Saturday that sent reliever Rudy Seanez to the Florida Marlins.

"I'm going to play him a lot," manager Tony Peña promised. "This kid has a really good upside. He was once one of the top prospects in the Arizona Diamondbacks' organization.

"He has some tools. He's a real good defensive player, an above-average runner and has some power from both sides of the plate."

What Nuñez, 27, hasn't had is the opportunity to play regularly. He has just 64 at-bats this season for Florida, prompting him to lash out last month in frustration.

"I just don't want to be here sitting on the bench," he said. "I want them to make some decision. Like I say, play me or trade me."

Nuñez, 6 feet 3 and 210 pounds, was once viewed as one of Arizona's top prospects before joining the Marlins in a trade after the 1999 season.

"He has an above-average arm, above-average speed and raw power," Royals general manager Allard Baird said. "We think there's some upside.

"The mode we're in will allow him to play and give him the opportunity to turn those tools into skills."

Nuñez, a switch-hitter who throws right-handed, is batting just .172 with one homer and five RBIs. He was injured for much of last season but batted .311 with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in 59 games at Class AAA Albuquerque, N.M.
