Supposedly, two of Hudson, Howington, and Mateo..
Of course, that's only a rumor, but that's all we have to go by.
Let me add, there's probably not a prosect in the minors on opening day that should've been held back in that trade.. our farm is that low, and we needed starting pitching that badly.
Florida was looking to give him away, and we passed.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
