Kentucky Thoroughbreds and Tempe Knights

July 31st, 2009

Kentucky receives:
SP Gary Fisher (30, ML) - $2.2

Tempe receives:
2B Manny Sánchez (32, ML) - $2.3

Since Then:
Fisher pitched solidly for Kentucky in '09 after the trade. In 18 relief appearances (47.2 IP), he went 3-2 with a 3.59 ERA while serving as the team's long man. Overall, Fisher is a mediocre pitcher who is best suited in a mop-up role or non-pressure situation.

Sánchez appeared in 36 games with Tempe before being released (9/08/09). Prior to his relesae, he batted a dismal .207 with 2 homeruns and 16 RBIs for Tempe. His inability to hit and average defense will make it hard for him to stick in the big leagues.
