SP Ramón Ornelas (35, ML) - $1.5
San Antonio receives:
Kentucky's 7th round 2008 draft pick (SS Adrián Romero - 3rd pick)
Ornelas went 1-3 with a 5.87 ERA in 7 games with Kentucky before being traded to Duluth (7/22/08). He has been out of baseball after the '08 season.
Romero has developed steadily in San Antonio's lower level minor league systems. His strengths include excellent base stealing skills with speed to match along good infield defensive range. He grades out as average offensively. If Romero continues to develop, he projects as a backup utility infielder.
