West Virginia Coal Sox and Charleston Statesmen

May 17th, 2009

West Virginia receives:
MR Jake Tate (24, AAA) - minor league contract

Charleston receives:
MR Ken Cates (25, ML) - $0.39/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration

Since Then:
Tate pitched the majority of the '09 season with West Virginia. At West Virginia, he compiled a 1-0 record and 4.25 ERA in 30 relief appearances. Overall, Tate is a decent middle relief option.

Cates pitced solidly for Charleston in '09. He went 3-2 with a 3.21 ERA and 3 saves. He possesses above average stuff and great movement on his pitches. Those assets make him a viable setup reliever or depender frontline middle reliever.
