Marlins acquire Jeff Francouer in 3 Team Trade

Recommended Posts

Can't believe no one has posted this.


8:15pm: Rosenthal tweets that the Rangers are receiving international bonus money in the trade, while Moore is going to the Braves and Francoeur is going to Miami.


8:14pm: Francoeur is going to the Marlins, who are the third team in this deal, reports Sherman (on Twitter).


8:09pm: Rosenthal tweets that there is indeed a third team in the deal. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News tweets that Jeff Francoeur is not going to the Rangers in this trade.


8:07pm: The Rangers and Braves have completed a trade, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). It’s not clear just yet whom the Rangers have acquired from Atlanta, but minor league shortstop Dylan Moore is going to the Braves in the swap, according to Rosenthal. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that it could be a three-team deal (via Twitter), while Rosenthal adds in a second tweet that the trade isn’t major but is “more complicated than it might appear.”

Didn't care much for Francoeur at first but considering we didn't give up anything and that he has had a good season, he should be better than Arcia, Gillespie, Kelly, Andino, etc and he will split time with Ichiro which actually increases Ichiro's production...so yeah, good move. And again, glad the front office isn't giving up with this close to a playoff spot.
