Devil Rays - Acquired Navarro
Tampa Bay Devil Rays - Acquired C Dioner Navarro and P Jae Seo from the Los Angeles Dodgers for P Mark Hendrickson and C Toby Hall.
Woo, a challenge trade! Well, not much of a challenge for Andrew Friedman and Gerry Hunsicker, landing one of the Dodgers’ most obvious trading chips for an inadequate catcher and a swap of #5 starters. It was long expected that the Dodgers would give up either Russell Martin or Navarro at some point, but most people, myself included, expected the team to finally pull the gun to address a need.
Hendrickson is having the best ERA of his career. Why?
Hendrickson Year BABIP ERA Career .301 5.21 2006 .252 3.81Hmmm, something’s different, I just can’t quite put my finger on it…
Hendrickson, of course, remains Mark Hendrickson. He’s still really tall. He still has no fastball. He still has a few other pitches of varying quality that batters swing out mainly out of boredom.
While Hendrickson should head down, Jae Seo should be heading back up and while neither are stars, just adequate #4/#5 starters. In the long run, I’d put them about even (though Seo has more serfdom years left).
That leaves the trade as Toby Hall for Dioner Navarro. If the Rays’ new braintrust can get contending teams to upgrade their players for free, they’ll be in contention in the AL East in no time.
