Re: Todd Jones traded
Hancock's minor league K/9 is right at 7.00. And in 10 innings at the major league level, he had 10 K's.
He will suffice as a #4-#5 starter with a bullpen spot in mind.
Machado does appear to be the next Juan Castro.
Considering what we gave up, I'd grade this trade as a B-.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
