Kentucky Thoroughbreds and Fargo Dinosaurs

May 18th, 2007

Fargo receives:
SP Alfredo Pinto (32, ML) - $3.9/$3.9/$3.9/$3.9

Kentucky receives:
Fargo's 5th round 2007 draft pick (MR José Alfaro - 11th pick)

Since Then:
Alfaro remains in Kentucky's lower end farm system and has pitched well as a converted starter in '09 with Kentucky's Class-A affiliate. However it still is not a lock that Alfaro is a big league talent.

Pinto pitched horribly for Fargo going 3-14 with a 5.39 ERA during the 2007 season. He was then traded to New Orleans on 10/27/07. Since then he has been traded to San Antonio and later to West Virginia during the winter of '08. He won the 2008 Planetary Extreme Baseball Alliance Planetary Extreme Championship with the New Orleans Trendsetters.
