Surenos Trade For Owen

The 2-time defending World Champion Oakland Surenos have made a move to bolster their infield, getting Terry Owen from New York for a relief pitching prospect.

Owen was initially a first-round pick of the San Diego franchise. He was a part-timer for most of his 5 years in Cleveland, but started at SS and 3B his last 3 seasons in Madison (now Buffalo) and Fresno. Owen has a .282 lifetime average, and, he's likely to fill a utility role for the Surenos.

In return, the Necromancers get Geronimo Guzman, a Season 11 IFA by the Baltimore organization. Guzman has a very lively, rising, 4-seam fastball. He'll get a lot of strikeouts, especially against lefty batters. He has some problems against righties, and his second pitch - a slider - is of average-to-decent major league quality.
