Trade Brohio for Brotlanta?
The Cleveland Indians have traded outfielder Michael Bourn and outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher to the Braves in exchange for third baseman Chris Johnson. The Indians are sending money to the Braves as part of the trade….
Essentially, these are players who have fallen out of favor in their current situations swapped for each other. Problem for problem(s).
Where the money comes in would be here:
Bourn/Swisher: Due $29 million in 2016
Johnson: Due $16.5 ...
He’s no Carlos Silva though.
Edwin Jackson is officially a free agent, as the Cubs released the veteran right-hander after designating him for assignment last week.
That means Chicago is on the hook for the remaining $15 million or so on Jackson’s four-year, $52 million contract and he’s now able to sign with any team for whatever he can get.
Jackson was terrible as a starter for the Cubs in 2013 and 2014, combining to go 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA…
