MR José Ferrer (29, ML) - $0.62/$0.75/$0.75
West Virginia receives:
SS Alejandro Morín (18, A) - minor league contract
Ferrer had a productive '09 season with Arlington after the trade. In 28 relief appearances (50.1 IP), he went 1-3 with 3.22 ERA. José hoped to continue his success with Arlington in 2010; Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. He spent the entire year rehabbing a forearm injury. 2011 will be a contract year and his main goal will be to stay healthy for the entire season in order to build up his value.
Morín played at West Virginia's SS-A and A affiliates in 2009. At both stops, he has struggled offensively and appears to be a career minor leaguer. He has excellent raw defensive skills but his limited offensive skills will prevent him from becoming a true big leaguer.
