AP article has Jose Acevedo being traded to the Rockies for Allan Simpson.
It’s apparent that the Reds had given up on Acevedo, even though he showed a lot of promise last year in the bullpen. He had a good first start for Louisville also.
Simpson appears to be a strikeout pitcher, has been used as a reliever for most of his minor league career. He’s 27.
Here are Simpson’s numbers.
Acevedo might have been a major league starter at some point and starters are always more valuable than relievers, but my guess is this ends up being a nothing for nothing deal.
