    Straily traded to Miami for prospects: RHP Castillo, RHP Brice, OF White

    Oh my phone right now, but Jeff Passan has it on Twitter. Three prospects coming back.

    Re: Straily "Close" to Being Traded to Miami

    Luis Castillo (seems a little old, no?) and Austin Brice are two of the prospects

    Marlins to Acquire Dan Straily

    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/...y-marlins.html

    The Marlins are nearing a deal that would net them right-hander Dan Straily from the Reds in exchange for right-handed pitching prospects Luis Castillo and Austin Brice in addition to a third minor leaguer, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter).

    If Castillo is really part of the deal, that's a good get.

    Castillo and Brice have big fastballs, but don't seem to figure in a future Reds' rotation. I don't have a very high opinion of Straily, but two bullpen prospects don't seem like a major heist for Straily.

    If Straily was destined for the bullpen with the Reds, and I think that's what was going to happen, getting two bullpen prospects actually seems like a pretty good deal.

    I'm not sure this trade will actually happen. None of the local beat reports have even hinted this is going on.

    We are being scammed by the national press.

    Castillo is the #2 prospect for the Marlins. According to Baseball America he hit 101 last year
    If somebody is gracious enough to give me a second chance, I won't need a third.

    Straily got by on mainly smoke and mirrors last year, so I'm happy to get a couple of interesting arms in return.

    Brice is the bullpen prospect here. Castillo's a starter.

    Reds are getting 2 of the Marlins' pitching prospects for the essentially nothing that they paid for Straily. This is a good trade.

    So the Reds are trading for some more magic beans. And the circle will go unbroken.

    I was welcomed a long time ago and am sick of it. Just more rearranging of the deck chairs on that famous ship of long ago.
