Spruill had 27 starts in double A with a 3.69 e.r.a. and 9-11 record.
Delgado went 4-9 for the Braves and he's only 22 years old.
I'm not that impressed and think the D-Backs got screwed.
Someone said it was like giving up Bailey and Corcino. I strongly disagree. Delgado is not Bailey and Spruill is far from being Corcino. Looks more to me like giving up Leake, Frazier, Sharky Rogers, and a couple of guys the Reds wouldn't have missed in A-ball. Other than Frazier, I would have done that.
Actually agree with this assessment. Delgado has more upside than Leake for sure, but Frazier is younger and under team control for longer than Prado. So a Leake, Frazier, Rogers and a couple other hum-drums is probably a fair comp.
