TRADE! ARI sends Scherzer to SEA for Beltre/Batista


Recommended Posts

...April Fools joke?

Hardly. Scherzer and Beltre both have to pass physicals. Each has had shoulder issues. Scherzer was recently placed on the DL, although that's primarily to open a roster spot until the club needs a 5th starter. Beltre had offseason surgery.

For Arizona, the move addresses the awful 3B defense played by Mark Reynolds, but the price is very high, IMO. Beltre is a free agent after the season, so unless the Diamondbacks sign him to a long-term deal, they've give up a big piece of the future for a rental.

If this is in fact NOT an April Fools joke, can't it just go under the 2009 MLB thread? I mean, it's not like this trade is really a "blockbuster" -- not to me anyways.
