Winter Meetings News

The first couple of days of the Belle Winter Meetings featured dozens of trade rumors but only two actual transactions.

The Wings and the Karn Evil 9 kicked off trade activity with a minor deal. El Paso got setup man Mark Martin, who had 11 saves and a 3.95 ERA last year, for Hal Williamson, an infield prospect and season 13 sandwich pick (#43).

In the first deal with pennant race implications, Austin bolstered its pitching staff by parting with 2 prospects for Trenton's Magglio Nunez. Nunez has 68 wins and a 3.22 ERA over 7 seasons, and is expected to move into the Chaloupa rotation despite being a little short in stamina for a starter. Trenton worked a good deal, getting infielder Tony Amaro (#13 overall last year) and SP Tommy Lloyd (#20 overall in season 13).
