Pitchers Featured in Three-Player Deal
The Arkansas Cardinals and Texas Outlaws announced today they had completed a three-player trade, with the Outlaws sending pitcher Anthony Reyes to Arkansas for pitchers Adam Wainwright and Vicente Padilla.
“This helps strengthen our staff and brings a flexibility as well. Wainwright will likely start for us, but it’s possible he could close some games out should the need arise. And Padilla will bring us quality innings at a good price,” said Texas owner Robert Arnwine in a statement.
The Cardinals were content with the deal as well.
“We hated to part with those guys, but we wanted to free up a little room on our staff to see if we couldn’t be in on a few of the free agents still available,” said Cardinal GM Billy Beane. “Getting back what we feel is a quality talent in Reyes really softens the blow.”
