Oakland has been shopping IF prospect Benj Green all over the Winter Meetings; they found a taker this morning, and surprise...it's the super-proactive Chicago Free Swingers.
Chicago gets Green, Season 15's 7th overall pick. He's a defensive whiz who can handle either 2B or 3B and could hit .250-.270 with 15-20 HR's. The Surenos get SP Louie Paniagua, a SP with 46-48, 4.25 ERA lifetime numbers, Wolf King, a less-talented version of Green, and $5MM cash.
The trade continues what is becoming a decidedly National League trend in the offseason: of the trades and A/B FA moves made so far (with each side of a trade counting as 1 "move"), the NL has made 21 moves to the AL's 6.
