Juan Richardson: 25 year old 3B who had a severe ankle sprain last year. Looks like this guy has some serious power potential.
Franklin Perez: 26 year old righthanded pitcher who missed all of last year with elbow surgery.
I think it would be a coup if O'Brien were able to get 21 year old right handed pitcher Elizardo Ramierz or 23 year old right handed pitcher Keith Bucktrot.
Ramirez pitched in the majors this season, so he can't be the PTBNL. I know the rule for that says that a PTBNL may not have played in the league he is traded into in that season. Bucktrot is too highly regarded for them just to give him away (although it wouldn't be a first for Wade to give away guys that have potential). Perez just got promoted, and has been playing well. My guess will be Junge. He isn't very good.
