Connecticut Nutmeggers and New Jersey Hitmen

Sepetember 2nd, 2008

Connecticut receives:
3B José Montaño (21, AAA) - minor league contract

New Jersey receives:
CF Claudio Córdova (27, ML) - $3.7

Since Then:
Córdova played well for New Jersey in September of '08 after the trade. He batted .344 with 3 homeruns and 18 RBIs in 26 games. He was not retained by New Jersey in the offseason. He has since signed a 5-year deal worth $25,810,00 with New Orleans (3/18/09). An excellent righfielder, he rates as a solid but not spectacular all-around offensive player .

Montaño has played well for Connecticut's AA affiliate in '09. An average talent all-around, Montaño projects as a future big league bench player at best.
