Blue Jays - Acquired Morrow
Toronto Blue Jays - Acquired P Vic Morrow from the Seattle Mariners for P Brandon League and RF Yohermyn Chavez.
Challenge trade! Two pitchers with talent and good reason to think they’ll be better than they were in 2009 swap places. Brandon Morrow’s the more valuable player, assuming he starts and doesn’t blow a gasket about it, with Chavez being the quiet throw-in. Chavez is years away and needs to cut down his swing somewhat, but he took a big step forward in the power department and he’s worth watching in 2010.
If he’s a starter, Morrow will be a big plus to Toronto’s depleted rotation (thanks to the Halladay trade and what I assume to be the abduction murders of Marcum, Litsch, and McGowan) and League gives the Mariners an explosive bullpen arm that they really need. Honestly, this is a solid trade for both sides, with each team getting a pitcher that’s more use to them than the other guy (I like Morrow more than the projection).
