Jamie Ramsey from Better Off Red reports that Cincinnati Reds get “LHP Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for LHP Travis Wood, OF Dave Sappelt and minor league IF Ronald Torreyes.” [Source] Mark Sheldon from Mark My Word also writes about the trade here.
I am amazed that Dave Sappelt was one of the guys to go. The Reds 40 man roster is now at 36. They have some work ahead of them now to get at least two more outfielders and a SS/INF along with a closer which should be first on the list still. Walt Jocketty must have a plan in store for this. I really can’t see him not having something set up soon in order to help with the lack of position players now.
