    Looks like we have traded Cooper and Smith to the Marlins for Michael King and international bonus pool money.

    King has been the afterthought in this trade, but a deeper look into his stats show an extreme GB pitcher.

    I looked at those numbers and initially thought the same thing, but those extreme data points for GB% were posted over a total of 9 innings.

    The bulk of his work (149.1 IP) last year was at 55%, which is nice, but not anything extreme in my view. He seems to definitely be a groundball pitcher who works towards contact, though.

    It would have been good for 4th in the majors this year. I suppose extreme is subjective, but its still a 2 to 1 ratio in a really healthy sample size in A. There could be more improvement in that area for him.

    As Keith Law pointed out, the Yankees have an industry held reputation of increasing the fastball velocity of their pitchers. I have to wonder if they can do the same with this pitcher.

    Buster Olney has reported the Yankees have maxed out the amount of IFA money they can acquire from other teams.

    I'm hoping for this with Sears, too...

    Good stuff, Rob. Thanks. Yanks protected him from the Rule 5, which is an indication of how much they like him.

    I think he's going to be that classic uptick is velocity guy and become something intriguing.

    All the scouts that saw him pitch loved him.

    Loiasiga is going to move fast next year. We're still gonna get painfully pinched in the Rule 5, but this would have been brutal because he's already a strike-thrower who could probably contribute to a major league pen right away.

    Yeah, the stuff and upside is too good to lose to the freakin' Padres. You just know Preller would've popped him in the draft if he could. Agreed, if Loaisiga stays healthy, he should be a fast mover.

    Coshow and Cortes are the most likely losses. I like them. But they're bullpen pieces and I can live with it. There's nobody unprotected, particularly pitchers, that has me saying "Damn, this could come back to bite them".
