Devil Rays - Acquired Ryu
Tampa Bay Devil Rays - Acquired P Jae-Kuk Ryu from the Chicago Cubs for P Greg Reinhard and OF Andy Lopez.
Ryu had no chance to make the Cubs roster anytime soon as he’s 7th at best in the rotation depth chart and the Cubs have a large bullpen crunch which leaves a lot of good relievers fighting for jobs. Short of sending Murton to the minors, releasing Daryle Ward, and going with a 15 man pitching staff (Ryan Theriot SUPERSTUD SUPERSUB), someone is going to be wasting his time in Iowa.
The Devil Rays can use the additional arm depth without the same roster management issues. Ryu still has some upside and even if he doesn’t improve, there’s nothing wrong with having a 5th starter/swingman hanging around. Andy Lopez is interesting, but a long way off and nobody really expects either Reinhard or Lopez to do anything other than sniff the bottom of a Top 20 prospect list for a time.
