SP Yukio Fujita (24, ML) - $1.5/$1.5/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration
San Antonio receives:
SP Jeremy Hann (19, AA)
Manchester's 3rd round 2009 draft pick (LF Tyrone Miller - 9th pick)
Fujita went 6-3 with a 3.23 in 12 starts with Manchester in '08. He remains with Manchester in '09 and has pitched solidly. Overall, he rates as a dependable middle of the rotation starter.
Hann has pitched pretty well in San Antonio's farm system. However, he has suffered a severe setback in '09 with a torn labrum that will put him out of commissioner for at least 12 months (7/11/09).
Miller has struggled in his first SS-A season in '09. A solid defensive outfielder, Miller projects to be a big league platoon player or 4th outfielder.
