Twins-Firebirds Trade Announced
Saturday, June 25th , 2022
The Twins and Firebirds announced a deal that was completed today. Minnesota sent 29-year old LHP Brandon Finnegan, 21-year old minor league RF Chris Comstock, and 22-year old minor league RHP Rudy Thomas to Atlanta for 31-year old LHP Tim Cooney and 32-year old 1B Freddie Freeman. Both teams appear happy with the outcome of the trade. The general managers told the Baseball News Network they felt the swap was beneficial for all parties involved.

Atlanta will retain a portion of Freeman's remaining contract.

This year Finnegan has registered 4 wins and 6 losses in 15 starts with a 5.23 ERA while registering 55 strikeouts and 24 walks in 86 innings.

This season Cooney has 3 wins and 4 losses and a 3.95 ERA.
Washington, Los Angeles Agree to Swap
Saturday, June 25th , 2022
Reports have surfaced that Washington has agreed to send 32-year old RHP Allen Webster, 28-year old CF David Dahl, 25-year old minor league RHP Dan Ibarra, and 25-year old minor league SS Héctor Rodríguez to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for 29-year old RHP Matt Wisler, 32-year old SS Jose Iglesias, and 27-year old CF Manuel Margot. "It's a done deal," said one executive speaking on the condition of anonymity. "I'm surprised word got around so quickly. We just signed off on this an hour ago." The deal apparently is awaiting physicals before an official announcement is made by either team.


This year Dahl is hitting at a .285 pace with 9 home runs and 50 RBIs. He has played in 72 games and scored 46 times.

This year Wisler has a 2-6 record with a 5.34 ERA in 15 starts.

The trade, rumored for days, was completed in the wee hours this morning.

Vancouver will retain a portion of Yelich's remaining contract.

Sargent is batting .191 with 2 home runs and 7 RBIs this season.

For the season, Yelich is hitting at a .297 clip with 5 home runs, 23 RBIs and has scored 30 runs. He has 66 hits, 24 walks and a .364 on-base percentage.
