DeJesus Traded to Oakland
GMDM traded David DeJesus for pitchers Vin Mazzaro and Justin Marks. Marks, 22, has been unsuccessful at A ball so he is just filler in this deal. Mazzaro, 24, was supposedly highly sought by a number of teams, but you have to wonder why. In 200+ big league innings, half of which are in the Oakland Colisseum, he has an ERA of 4.72 with a WHiP over 1.5 and a K/BB rate of only 1.55. If he can't get guys out in Oakland how can he get guys out in KC?? Couple is relatively low K rate with the Royals poor defense and we have just acquired another Kyle Davies.
