Kansas City Royals
Acquired P Jaime Cerda from the New York Mets for P Shawn Sedlacek.
The Mets soured on Cerda quite a bit this year, but he’s a better pitcher then his 2003 Met stats show. Cerda’s one of those dreaded relief prospects but he did show some potential in 2002 and a 0.81 ERA in 4 minor league seasons (including a 50-60 inning scoreless stretch!) is nothing to sneeze at. There doesn’t appear to be an open spot in the Royals bullpen to start the season but Cerda will appear in the majors at some point, probably with better success. Cerda would have been useful for the Mets at some point, but Duke Deux has his own troop of minor league relievers coming up.
Sedlacek is strictly organizational filler at this point. Being a big, crafty righty that doesn’t fool AAA hitters and throwing a sinker that occasionally doesn’t won’t earn him a job in the majors.
Good move for the Royals. Cerda doesn’t fit onto the team as currently constituted, but his talent fits well into the organization.
