Cats, Peffercorns Make Three-Player Swap
While the bidding portion of the United Rotisserie League has been placed on hiatus for the Thanksgiving holidays, there have been no restrictions laid on making trades during this breather. On Sunday, the Atkins Alley Cats and Wendy’s Peffercorns did just that, swapping three players and some financial considerations.
The Alley Cats received third baseman Chad Tracy as well as financial considerations from the Peffercorns, who brought in outfielder Nick Markakis and second baseman Jorge Cantu.
“We freed up some much needed cap room and also recieved a heck of a player,” said Cats GM Dave Dombrowski. The Alley Cats had been pushing the limits of the $650 cap, but are able to breathe a little easier after this deal.
On the Peffercorns side, owner Mike Salony was very excited. “One of the assets this team has is the payroll flexibility to take on contracts,” he said. “Being able to snag two quality players like this is a wonderful opportunity for us.”
