Kevin Whelan has been DFA'd to make room on the 40 man roster for Hiroki Kuroda. He was the last guy left from the Gary Sheffield trade with the Tigers. Trading for prospects is always risky but in the rare cases where Cashman gets to be the seller instead of the buyer he seems to have a bit of a rough time. The only other two deals I can think of like this are the Robin Ventura for Scott Proctor and Bubba Crosby deal and the one that sent Randy Johnson back to the Diamondbacks for Luis Vizcaino, Steven Jackson, Ross Ohlendorf and Alberto Gonzalez.
