Manchester Maulers and the Connecticut Nutmeggers

December 29th, 2008

Connecticut receives:
RF José Cortéz (26, ML)

Manchester receives:
Connecticut's 2nd round 2009 draft pick (compensated to Reno for Lorenzo Álvarez signing)
Connecticut's 3rd round 2009 draft pick (traded to Omaha in Jacques Fillion deal)

Since Then:
Cortéz was traded to New Orleans midway through the season (7/12/09). Prior to the trade, he hit .267 with 11 homeruns and 34 RBIs with Connecticut in 65 games. A former All-Star, Cortéz is a good RBI man. His numbers have slightly declined since '07 but he still remains a productive force in any batting lineup.
